FINA joins forces with partners of cultural institutions, researches and fellow aggregators from all over Europe in “Europeana XX: Century of Change”, a CEF funded project that aims to make available and more accessible 20th-century content – audiovisuals, photographs and other types of media – through the Europeana portal.
On March 5th and 6th, cultural institutions, aggregators and researchers gathered to kick-off the new project: “Europeana XX: Century of Change”. Representatives of the 16 partners attended the meeting, hosted at the premises of the Project Coordinador Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum. During the sessions, participants had the opportunity to get to know each other, exchange ideas on the main project’s goals and relevant activities and discuss the project’s workflow.
Europeana XX intends to identify and highlight the main drivers that led to social change in Europe across the 20th-century: key moments that have shaped the current social, political and cultural realm. With this purpose in mind, FINA, member of EUscreen and European Film Gateway networks, participates as one of the aggregators that will enrich the Europeana repository with high-quality 20th-century audiovisual content. Newly added digital archives will be further used in various editorial contexts. Europeana XX will develop a series of online curated collections and on-site activities which are set to take place in the next eighteen months in different venues all around Europe.
Both, the online as well as the on-site experience the project offers makes the archival content more accessible and discoverable for all audiences. It helps foster dialogue and reflection on societal change seen from various angles: politics and economics, ways of living and technology.
