Join the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage celebrations!

Webinar – Beyond Theory: Joan Boadas in conversation with David Iglésias 

ICA, in collaboration with its Photographic and Audiovisual Archives Working Group (PAAG), will take part in the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage celebrations with a webinar on Wednesday 26 October at 17.00 CET. This webinar is part of the Beyond Theory interview series presented by PAAG, the main goal of which is to interview highly experienced and recognised professionals dealing with different aspects in the audio-visual and photographic field. 

The webinar will be a conversation between David Iglésias, PAAG’s Chair and ICA Representative in the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA), and Joan Boadas, recently awarded the distinction of ICA Fellow, about photographic archives and the role of the ICA community in advancing the debate around the safeguard of this priceless heritage.  

In the words of Mary Egan, Chair of the CCAAA, “Audiovisual materials can tell your story, your truth, and your presence. They provide a window to the world, allowing us to observe events we cannot attend, hear voices from the past who can no longer speak, and craft stories that inform and entertain. By listening to recorded sounds and looking at images captured on film and video we can not only appreciate the richness of this culture but also learn from it.” 

Join us on this day to talk about the stories, truths, and windows that audiovisual archives allow us to explore! 

Watch this webinar on our social media channels: ICA Facebook, ICA LinkedIn or the ICA YouTube channel.  

This virtual session will be delivered in Spanish. Interpretation into other languages will not be provided.
