Düsseldorf | European Video Dance Heritage conference


Logo-temp-EVDHThe European Video Dance Heritage Conference will be held on November 13th - 15th, 2013 at tanzhaus nrw in Düsseldorf.  The conference, with speakers and participants from throughout Europe in the areas of politics, (new) media, technology and law as well as many of the most important dance archives in Europe, raises the question about the heritage and the future of dance in a digitally connected world.

Please register by 1st November at the latest The conference addresses: ·         Artists who seek a broader audience online ·         Archives that want to present their inventory on the internet ·         Scientists who consider the question of technical and legal frameworks ·         Politicians who set the frameworks of the cultural heritage’s preservation. The conference serves as the opening for the EU-project European Video Dance Heritage. The project contains a two-year analysis and an experimental programme, during which the project partners are engaged in setting up an audio-visual dance memory. The key question of this project is how such a dance memory can be developed, taking into account the evolution of digital technologies, as well as the different forms of access to resources – and furthermore, how to make this heritage accessible to younger generations.
