Future Thinking: The AHRC Connected Communities Media Collection, Archiving the Audio-Visual and Beyond

A day of thinking about and exploring archives and their use and development, in relation to the Connected Communities Media Collection…. The focus of the day is this archive built to host (and make accessible) audio-visual media outputs from more than 300 projects funded in the AHRC Connected Communities programme.

We will hear about a range of current audio-visual archiving practices, future digital possibilities, and have the opportunity to explore the working prototype of the Connected Communities Media Collection, before deciding on some possibilities for the archive as it goes forward…. Brought to you by Ann Light, Northumbria University and Tamar Millen, Community Media Association, with AHRC CC Leadership Fellow, George McKay.
