The fast development of digital media and the challenges of new technology create an acute need for improved solutionsand practices within organizations working with the archiving, restoration or distribution of media art.
Also the Nordic countries are facing challenges regarding the archiving, preservation and distribution of media art, both historical and contemporary. “Shared practices for distributing and archiving media art” is a network collaboration between five organizations, who represent the major archivers and distributors of media art in their respective countries: AV-arkki (Finland), Filmform (Sweden), Vasulka Chamber, National Gallery (Iceland), Videokunstarkivet (Norway) and LIMA (the Netherlands).
The networking project focuses on collaboration and exchange of ideas and expertise, sharing and translating resources and best practices as well as building concrete collaboration projectsbetween the partner organisations. The network collaboration has been made possible by funding from the Nordic Culture Point.
