#PreserveAfricaArchives: Deeper Stakeholders Collaboration Is The Solution - Industry Forum Says!
As part of the ongoing industry programme on "Preserving Africa's Sound and Audio-Visual Assets", Broadcast Media Africa, in collaboration with Apricity Consulting, hosted a one-day online forum on 'Auditing And Preparing Broadcast Archives For Digital Preservation In Africa', on Tuesday, 25 May 2021.
The industry forum gave a platform to broadcasters and archivist professionals to consult with each other and with the audience on the best methods to drive digitisation and preserve broadcasting archival materials in the continent. Through first-hand experiences from the African broadcasters and archivists, we learnt about the progress and limitations faced concerning the digitisation of their archives.
A unanimous view of collaborating within the continent to ensure restoration, preservation, and digitisation correctly was the driving solution at the forum.
