PREFORMA @ Girona 2014: Archives and Cultural Industries


Girona City Council, through its Municipal Archive, is hosting and organizing the 2nd Annual Conference of the International Council on Archives, which will be held in October 2014, as approved by the General Assembly of the International Council on Archives, which met on the 24th of August 2012 in the Australian city of Brisbane.
This event will coincide with the celebration of the 9th European Conference on Archives (ECA), organized every four years by the European Branch of the International Council on Archives (EURBICA).

Also taking place at the same time is the 13th Image and Research Seminar, organized biennially by the Centre for Image Research and Diffusion (CRDI) of Girona City Council in conjunction with the Archivists Association of Catalonia (AAC), which will mainly focus on photographic and audiovisual documents.

All three events are grouped under a common title: Archives and Cultural Industries, in order to foster debate on a key issue for archives: the potential for the documentation that has been conserved in them to be a resource provider for the creation and consumption of culture among the population.



PREFORMA has been invited to give a talk by the Girona City Council, which is one of the memory institution participating to the project thorugh the the Records Management, Archives and Publications Service (SGDAP).

The presentation is scheduled on Monday 13th of October, in a session lasting from 14:00 until 15:00.
