Online event 7/8 October organized by FIAT/IFTA and IASA.
Approximately six months have passed since the coronavirus outbreak. The cultural and creative industries (CCI) were forced to adapt quickly to the new realm and reposition themselves in the dramatically changed operational context. Most of the discussions and reports that have been shared to date regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the CCI sector focus on the negative consequences. However, despite its disruptive nature, the crisis has also triggered acceleration in the development of existing ideas or creation of completely new ones with regard to the online access, copyright, new creative ways to use collections.
AV archival stakeholders can see this moment as an opportunity to work towards generating long-term positive impact. All professionals in the AV archiving domain are invited to share their experiences and insights during a virtual exchange on the topic of COVID-19 as a driver for change in accessing digital heritage collections.
The aim of the virtual exchange is to:
- facilitate a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 for the AV archival sector, specifically related to online access to collections;
- gather professionals from the global archival community to discuss how positive changes can be identified and sustained;
- share best practices, individual experiences and by jointly thinking of best ways forward and new strategies.
The main findings will be summarised in a report and published on the FIAT/IFTA and IASA websites.
