The purpose of this project is to inform as regards the various
possibilities for digital archiving of audiovisual materials and the
strategies for their dissemination.

In Slovenia, there exists no digital archive for all the vast and
important video and new media production. The individual organisations and
artists have audiovisual materials mostly in a rough form that is hardly
accessible to professionals or general public. On the official level, i.e.
at the Ministry of Culture & Office of Cultural Heritage, nobody is
working on that question claiming that video/new media are too new
categories to be considered by their preservation/protection programs.

This current situation has triggered SCCA-Ljubljana to conceive a
project discussing the issue of the production and dissemination of video
(& new media) archives on a practical and theoretical level. The project
is a logical continuation of the SCCA concerns with research and
documentation of video production, which have resulted in
Videodokument: Video art in Slovenia 1969-1998 (catalogue, book of essays,
CD-ROM and web site, 1999/2003).

  The main aims of the project are:
- to establish a platform for preservation, presentation and
dissemination of the audiovisual contents (contextual level)
- to trigger the institutional change, i.e. to make possible the
inclusion of the audiovisual/video archives under the sector of the
national cultural heritage (political level)
- to present models and means of preservation, presentational
strategies and possibilities of dissemination (theoretical level)
- to educate the participants of the workshop in production of digital
archives and to inform them about the models of archiving for the
purposes of storage or presentation and dissemination / to trigger the
SCCA DVD, CD-ROM publishing (practical level).


The leaders of workshops and lectures are Slovene and foreign experts, who
are active in the field of digital media and their use in
production, archive and dissemination purposes, while bypassing the
governing commercial logic:
