28 June – 2 July 2021, online
DCDC stands for Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities. It is a cross-sectoral conference, hosted by our content providers The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc, that brings together the GLAMA sectors (galleries, libraries, archives, museums and academia) to shine a light on our shared experiences, innovations, interests and concerns.
DCDC21 (Catalysts for change: transforming our practices, collections, and communities through times of crisis) will take place on 28 June-2 July and explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums, and cultural organisations. It will explore the impact that crisis can have on working practices, collections, and audience engagement, and how periods of turbulence can lead to new opportunities for research and collaboration. It will seek to examine how cultural heritage organisations can look beyond times of crisis and foster innovation and collaboration in their institutions and communities.
Archives Portal Europe will take part in the conference presenting in one panel.
Each year DCDC brings together over 400 colleagues from across the archive, library, museum, heritage and academic sectors.
This year they are offering two types of bursary:
- Registration Bursaries (up to 50 available)
