About the webinar:

DPC and NCDD members are invited to attend this webinar with Gaby Wijers, director of the international platform LIMA that focuses on the preservation, distribution and research of media art (www.li-ma.nl). She will talk to us about how the current situation in the Netherlands is concerning the sustainability of born digital art. Can we preserve it for the future, and what is needed to do so?

Gaby will use examples from the research rapport on born digital art of the Dutch Cultural Coalition Digital Preservation (only available in Dutch) and the Transformation Digital Art project from the Dutch Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (SMBK).
