Archive Camp a great success

Despite the extraordinary heat, participants of the Archive Camp, hosted by EngageMedia and IVAA (Indonesian Visual Arts Archive) found creative ways to share their ideas over three fabulous days in Central Java. This camp involved five important organisations, which are IVAA, Combine, Kampung Halaman, Ruang Rupa and EngageMedia.

EngageMedia recently held an Archive Camp in Central Java, focussed on collaboration between media organisations.

The camp was focussed on two areas - production and technical.

The production group discussed archiving and strategy around their own projects, and the technical group spent most of their time working on Plumi in the "geek cave". The technical team included Dimo (Greece), Pushpa (India), Grant (Australia) and Izhar (Malaysia). Slaving over four video servers, they worked on improving the latest version of Plumi, working on the interface in conjunction with the producers.

Ivan Lanin from the Wikimedia Foundation Indonesia facilitated a discussion around Creative Commons.

The camp was a great success, opening up important communication channels between the technical and production sides of video archiving projects, and between attending organisations that found commonalities in the work they do.
