Regional Webinar on Audio Visual Heritage Day 2022
Audio-visual archives bring us tales from all across the world about people’s lives and cultures. They are a treasured asset that affirms our collective memory and serves as a vital source of information since they reflect the cultural, socioeconomic, and linguistic variety of our communities. They aid in our development and understanding of the world in which we all live. Conserving this history and making it available to the public and future generations is a critical aim for all memory institutions and the general public.
World Audio-Visual Heritage Day provides an opportunity for media organisations to raise awareness of the need for immediate action and to recognise the importance of audiovisual documents.
This regional webinar will carry the theme “Enlisting documentary heritage to promote inclusive, just and peaceful societies’, to help facilitate content producers to not only utilise the archives to enhance their stories but also find ways to preserve their work for next generations.
This webinar will explore how broadcasters and independent content creators can utilise this year’s theme, “Enlisting documentary heritage to promote inclusive, just and peaceful societies” in their work. Case studies of content creation from around the globe will be presented, and participants will discuss the challenges and opportunities content creators face in this fast-paced information-driven world.
