“Call for Participation

“Radio Archives in European Community Media”

International Conference on Open Radio Archives

4–6 June, 2015

Radio CORAX, Halle/Saale (Germany)

Community media across Europe face many of the same challenges in
creating and managing archives of broadcast content. Every minute, they
produce and broadcast an enormous amount of programming. But how is this
content preserved and used after its broadcast? Most community
broadcasters have created their own methodologies for preserving and
cataloguing their programs: writing their own algorithms, adapting
software to their needs, or developing complex file structures on hard
disks, servers and cloud services. To make past broadcasting accessible
to the public, some stations created systems to automatically upload
programmes to their website or developed online archives which can be
browsed or searched by program, subject or tag; others make use of
collaborative archiving platforms like the Cultural Broadcasting
Archive, or administer different “satellite” websites on specific
subjects or aimed at specific communities.

With the conference „Radio Archives in European Community Media“ we want
to encourage people involved in community media to present current
broadcast and multi-media archiving practices at their stations and to
generate ideas for an institutional structure for European community
radio archives.

Present and share your infrastructure solutions: At the conference we
would like to explore and exchange different ways in which community
media can preserve, use and share broadcast content. What tools and
infrastructures to archive audiovisual material are best suited for
community media? Which formats did your station find or create to
present audiovisual content online? Which innovative techniques or tools
did you develop or are you still looking for?

Archiving methods and archiving culture: A major challenge in building
community media archives is how to cultivate archiving as an essential
part of radio making. Many programme makers are focused foremost on
their “on air” show. What are the best ways to engage them in archiving
their programs and sharing them with online listeners? Who undertakes
what task: uploading programmes, adding descriptions and tags, promoting
them on social media? Are programs uploaded whole or split into specific
items, with or without music, and how is the material edited?

The responsibility to archive: 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.

For whom?

We invite and encourage programme makers and coordinators from European
community media, radio activists, researchers, programmers and
technicians to participate in the conference and submit proposals.
