Theme: Community Building for Collaborative Actions
The Fourteenth Conference and General Assembly of the South East Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA) was held in Bangkok, Thailand from 03 to 08 August 2010.
The theme for this year’s Conference echoed the concluding statements of the 13th Conference’s theme; the agenda on the need to strengthen interactions and collaborations between individuals, institutions, corporations, governments, nations and regions to develop audiovisual archiving during these troubled times
The Conference aimed in promoting the AV Archiving Community as it reaches out, includes and dialogues with other key partners and stakeholders as to pursue endeavors and strategic plans. Discourses and solutions must be elevated to transnational sensibilities as we deal with related concerns together. With these in mind, the 14th SEAPAVAA Conference calls for “Community Building for Collaborative Actions” SEAPAVAA.
The Conference aims to veer away from its previous seeming academic nature and delve deeper into concrete situations and clear feasible actions. The general direction is to provide an experience and environment that will bring the community closer together as to generate collaborative ideas and turn them into specific projects addressing common and shared concerns.
The Conference proper, which was held in the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, features lectures, roundtable discussions, workshops, archival gem screenings, institutional visits, socials and a retreat-excursion.
