Economies of the Commons 3
Images for the Future presents Economies of the Commons 3 – Sustainable Futures for Digital Archives. This third ‘eCommons’ international conference will be the biggest yet with two streams of extraordinary keynotes, presentations, hands-on workshops and plenty of networking. eCommons serves all who look for visionary, theoretical and hands-on practical know how on the current challenges and the future of archives.
eCommons 3 explores two themes:
1: The Challenge of Large Numbers: preservation, digitization and presentation of film, audio, video and photography: lessons learned in the Images for the Future project.
2: The Future of Archives: in two sessions (‘The Economies of Sharing’ and ‘Re-Imagining the Archive’) we examine the new role of digital and on-line rich media collections as active public resources, and we discuss new models to sustain them into the future.
