Managers of Audiovisual archives worldwide face a bewildering variety of challenges now and in the future. What should be their key policies and strategic priorities over the next few years? “Towards a New Audiovisual Think Tank”*, a White Paper released in January 2018 by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, with input from a new Think Tank of experts in the Audiovisual field, focusses on ten recommendations for the next ten years, based upon strategic priorities around which action, research and development and resources could be organised. Each recommendation is accompanied by a timeline of the first actions to take. These are being explored in depth by a series of working groups who are working in consultation with the wider archival and cultural community, with the aim to produce handbooks, strategy papers and other publications to help articulate and shape the most important activities for audiovisual archiving.
