The event will gather media professionals and cultural experts aiming to join their experiences, opinions, attitudes, knowledge and skills that will result in development of enhanced models and forms of storage of cultural heritage and cultural events in audiovisual format in various countries. It will also reveal models and ways to exchange information in that regard, contributing in more qualitative presentation of culture and arts in media.
Barbara Borčič, Miha Colner and Dušan Dovč (SCCA, Center for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana) will attend the conference. Barbara Borčić will present DIVA Station, a physical and web archive of video art which has been developing since 2005, and is one of SCCA projects, which is focused in the research, documentation and archiving of video art. Miha Colner, free-lance curator and collaborator of SCCA-Ljubljana, will join the presentation of DIVA Station and prepare the report from the conference. Dušan Dovč will present Artservis, a web-based information resource for artists, theorists and cultural managers. Artservis is run by SCCA-Ljubljana since 2001.
More, the conference aims to develop standards to follow, with the final aim to produce or to support production of a regional TV show that will cover arts and culture (as a follow up activity of the conference). The mix of the professional profiles and the experiences of the participants in the conference will hopefully help define optimal ways of including such a media product in a regular weekly program schedule.
The conference takes place in the period reach with artistic and cultural content (Ohrid Cultural Summer, 2010) and significant part of the conference will be dedicated to the events themselves in terms of practicing standards developed in the previous sessions of the conference as well as on the cultural and tourist site visits.
The conference is organized by Centre for Media Activities from Skopje and will join journalists, cultural workers and artists from the Region.
The conference is supported by Central European Initiative Fund (CEI) and contributed by Ministry of Culture of Republic of Macedonia.
