But how is this content preserved and used after its broadcast? [...] How can community archives integrate multilingualism? How can online archiving support programme exchange within Europe? What importance do analogue, physical archives have in the digital age, and how can community media secure and digitize them? How can community media archives unlock historical material about community life and social movements in user-friendly ways? Not least, we encourage proposals dealing with the question of copyright regulations and the role of open software and open knowledge. [...]
"We invite proposals for papers, workshops, discussions, presentations and radio shows on any subject related to Radio Archives in European Community Media.
