Stockholm, Sweden

EUscreen has organized a two-day conference on Use and Creativity in the audiovisual domain, to be held in Stockholm on September 15 and 16 2011.
The Conference aims to further address the potential of European television heritage online for a wide range of users. It will also explore creative approaches to enhance accessibility of European television heritage online. The goal is to expand methods to reach a wide range of users and to increase their engagement with online heritage material.
On the first day of the conference the keynote speakers:

  • Lynn Spigel from Northwestern University will be speaking about 'analogue nostalgia'
  • Dagan Cohen will talk about how the Upload Cinema initiative brings curated online video to the big screen
  • Paul Ashton will talk about the possibilities for online audio-visual media to push education forward
  • Jérôme Bourdon will present his research into global media and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Aubéry Escande, Kajsa Hedström, Johan Axhamn and Peter B. Kaufman will present different case studies on user engagement with online audiovisual heritage.
The second day will consist of two workshop sessions. In the morning the topic of a user community will be tackled, focusing on how EUscreen services can be exploited in learning, research, leisure/cultural heritage and creative reuse. The afternoon session will treat funding opportunities and sustainable business models for the digitisation of audiovisual material.
The Second EUscreen International Conference on Use and Creativity takes place at the National Library of Sweden, Stockholm, on September 15-16, 2011.
