Activating the Archive: Audiovisual Collections, Civic Engagement, Global Collaboration and Societal Change

4 Jun 2023 to 7 Jun 2023

Eye International Conference 2023


Following the first Activating the Archive conference in 2018, which looked at how audiovisual archives can stimulate people to engage with specific social and political causes, this second edition seeks to continue and expand this conversation by asking how audiovisual collections can be used and created as communal resources, through global and local projects and collaborations. Within this scope, the 2023 Activating the Archive edition is seeking contributions that cut across different fields, practices and regional contexts, to reflect a diverse array of approaches to collaboration and community-based audio-visual archiving.
