Winter School for Audiovisual Archiving

15 Jan 2019 to 18 Jan 2019
Hilversum, Netherlands

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in collaboration with AVA_Net organises its fourth Winter School for Audiovisual Archiving from 15 to 18 January 2019. Hereby we inform you that the registration has been opened. You can register here.

The Winter School is a unique training in Hilversum, The Netherlands, on preserving digital audiovisual collections. The Winter School offers audiovisual collection holders and archivists a useful mix of lectures, hands-on workshops and interactive sessions with renown experts to set up or further improve the digital preservation management of their audiovisual collections. Participants will work on case studies with peers from the archiving domain.

Winter School extended

At the request of earlier Winter School participants, we extended this year’s edition with an extra day. On this day, participants are introduced to various applications that support the sustainable storage process of audiovisual material. The day consists of extra hands-on components that bridge between digital sustainability models and daily work.


We are currently finalising the four-day programme. Guest speakers will be announced on the Winter School website. To get an impression of the content of the training, you can find our blog on last year’s Winter School edition here.

Registration for the Winter School is possible until Friday, November 16th.
