In today's global, networked landscape, there are more opportunities than ever to collaborate with colleagues around the world, and build sustainable partnerships that will enable the preservation of and access to our collective audiovisual heritage. But what models of global collaboration are most relevant and useful in our field? And how can we best ensure that those collaborations are productive, impactful, and beneficial to all stakeholders?
In this talk, Kara Van Malssen will describe a multi-year collaboration between the University of Ghana's J.H. Kwabena Nketia Archives at the Institute of African Studies, New York University's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation's Audiovisual Preservation Exchange (APEX) program, and AVP. Kara will talk about the factors that contributed to the success of this collaboration, and will offer suggestions on how IASA members can establish and sustain cross-cultural partnerships that will have a measurable impact.
