We cordially invite you to participate in the second edition of the Winter School for Audiovisual Archiving. This edition will take place January 25-27, 2017, on the premises of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Deadline for applications is December 19, 2016.
The Winter School is a unique three-day training in Hilversum on preserving audiovisual collections, on January 25, 26 and 27, 2017. The training sessions offer audiovisual collection holders and archivists a useful mix of lectures, hands-on workshops and interactive sessions with renown experts. Also, participants will work on case studies with peers from the archiving domain.
With the amounts and wide variety of born-digital media created on a daily basis, there is a growing need to implement and update audiovisual preservation plans in order to respond to the rising challenges of digital preservation. The Winter School offers archivists and collection holders of AV archives the necessary knowledge and skills to form or improve the digital preservation management of their audiovisual collections.
The Winter School for Audiovisual Archiving is an initiative from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in collaboration with AVA_Net.
The Winter School has been developed for collection holders and archivists from the Netherlands and abroad. The course language will be English.
On the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, October 27th, the program and guest speakers will be officially announced on the Winter School website.
