Towards a New Audiovisual Think Tank for Audiovisual Archivists & Cultural Heritage Professionals

730 views

Published on

This White Paper is commissioned by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in an effort to build a common platform for all the stakeholders – large, small; witting, unwitting – in the preservation of audiovisual heritage to consider the urgency of collective action in a fast-moving and increasingly strange world, a world where concerted efforts to preserve and share our information and knowledge are now more important than ever. The White Paper is intended for circulation in October 2017 among leaders of cultural and educational institutions participating in the 2017 FIAT/IFTA World Conference in Mexico – and at that meeting to help a new international thought leadership group to articulate, perhaps starting with the 10 key points below, an international research and action agenda and certain funding priorities for our audiovisual cultural heritage sector, broadly defined, over the next 10 years.
