A RICH AND VARIED CONFERENCE PROGRAMME
 

As this year’s conference theme, we chose ‘Archives out of the box!’ With this title, we don’t just literally mean the travelling of archive material outside of the archive space, but also, in the figurative sense, the liberation from clichés such as ‘old’ and ‘irrelevant’. We even refer to the emancipation of the archivist, who has become an essential partner in the decision-making process of media organisations or – in the case of audiovisual archives outside broadcasting – an appreciated curator of online content on platforms of all kinds. It’s time to celebrate that new role and discuss, explore and conquer the new possibilities it brings.
