Economies of the Commons 3
On 11 & 12 October 2012, the Images for the Future consortium organizes the conference Economies of the Commons 3 – Sustainable Futures for Digital Archives in the brand new venue of EYE Film Institute Netherlands in Amsterdam. This third edition of the ‘eCommons’ international conference serves all who look for visionary, theoretical and hands-on practical know how on the current challenges and the future of archives. It will be the most extensive edition yet with extraordinary keynotes (e.g. David Bollier, Kate Theimer, Martin Berendse), impressive presentations and speakers (e.g. Tony Ageh, Marco Rendina, William Uricchio), hands-on workshops and plenty of networking during the day- and evening programs.
The conference will explore the lessons learned in the Images for the Future project, and will examine new models for digital and on-line rich media collections as active and open public resources.
