Archivist Moving Image (and participant of the 2018 Winter School for Audiovisual Archiving)
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Winter School with the support of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC). The other fourteen participants came from all over the world; including the Netherlands, Brazil, Serbia, Singapore, Spain and the UK. Networking within this diverse cohort of professionals provided a wealth of insight and opportunities for sharing perspectives and approaches. A collaborative ‘collegiate’ style of learning was well supported by the course structure, with plenty of opportunity for discussion within sessions or over coffee breaks.
Utilising their teaching skills to create a positive learning environment, this year’s Winter School was expertly delivered by instructors Erwin Verbruggen (Sound and Vision), Kara Van Malssen (AVP) and Peter Bubestinger (AV-RD).
