Challenges and opportunities for Latin American Archives at risk.
During the first Workshop: Collaborate, Connect, Transform: challenges and opportunities for Latin American Archives at risk held at the IASA-FIAT/IFTA Joint Conference in 2020, showed the passion and commitment of Latin American archivists for the preservation of their audiovisual heritage, as well as the need to establish solid professional networks to build, from the diversity of each country, common solutions for Latin America.
One year after this initiative, FIAT/IFTA renews its commitment to Latin American professionals and organizes a new Spanish workshop in which the exchange of ideas and experiences is the true protagonist.
The second Workshop: Collaborate, Connect, Transform: challenges and opportunities for Latin American Archives at risk will be held on September 15 and will revolve around two main themes: the digitization and preservation of archives and cataloging models in the context of the television production.
We will have case studies from the archives of Telefé Noticias (Argentina) and the Televisión Nacional de Chile. The open dialogue around these topics will continue in the workshops on preservation and cataloging schemes that will have the participation of experts from Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Uruguay, Colombia and Spain. The dialogue will be extended to the participants who want to share the experiences of their archive.
