The conference took place at Srishti in January 2018.
As initiatives to preserve our cultural heritage gather momentum, it is instructive to consider how digital technology might be effectively used to increase engagement, reach and access. The range of speakers at this conference speak to the myriad ways by which institutions, organisations and individuals are rethinking and reshaping the archive through the means of digital technology. This conference will also offer an opportunity to contemplate and strategise digital infrastructures underpinning the archive – such as metadata and open access.
The first day focused on community archiving, cultural heritage and memory institutions, exhibition design, Indian cultural and linguistic content, and the second day focused on the use of video games and new media in the cultural heritage space.
