Every half year the ICARUS community gets together at the so-called ICARUS−Meeting for the purpose of welcoming new members and updating each other on the latest developments, project and work group progress. The meetings also serve as venues for exchanging experiences and knowledge about archival work and for envisioning and developing ideas for new projects and future cooperation.
It is at these meetings that the international network of institutions comes together, and the people behind the institutions meet face-to-face. We as a community are convinced that these get-togethers where information and ideas are shared professionally contribute to ICARUS’ success to a great extent: it is at these meetings where personal relations are established and trust in each others capabilities is built and deepened, so that thriving and sustainable synergies can flourish in the long-term.
Each ICARUS−Meeting is hosted by a member institution and organised in close cooperation with the ICARUS headquarters in Vienna (AT). The dates for these 3-day meetings usually fall in late spring and autumn. For detailed information on upcoming meetings, please take a look at our Event Calender below.
Taking Cultural Heritage Outside the Archives
Our ICARUS Meeting #21 will take place at the National Archives of Finland under the motto “Taking Cultural Heritage Outside the Archives”:
In times of rapid technological developments and thus societal changes – especially shifting and adjustments of everyday activities and daily life choices especially in terms of using these modern technologies – archives not only have to keep up with the digital age but to even more importantly ensure a participatory outreach. This meeting will give insight into a variety of topics dealing with how to better connect with communities on the basis of digital technology opportunities.
7th co:op partner meeting
At the penultimate partner meeting of the EU-funded project “community as opportunity“, the project partners will be able to hold a resumé about their accomplishments and start into their next phase of preparing the project`s final event – the Film Festival which will take place at the Croatian National Archives in November 2018.
