TRACKS: edit-a-thon Dans in Brussel (announcement)
While Brussels is internationally renowned as a ‘Mecca of contemporary dance’, it is striking that there is little or incomplete information available about this rich dance scene on Wikipedia, the most consulted encyclopedia in the world. Dag van de Dans is the perfect opportunity to change this together! PACKED vzw and Het Firmament organise two edit-a-thons about dance in Brussels with collaboration of Wikimedia Belgium and financial support by the Flemish Community Commission.
Resurrection Lab is looking for old carriers and hardware
This month, PACKED vzw launched the Resurrection Lab project in collaboration with iMAL. The project aims to transfer, preserve and give access to a collection of works that are often inaccessible due to the obsolescence of their carriers, their formats and the hardware and software environment required to access it. If you are an art organisation, an heritage institution, artist or anyone that has a born-digital works or content of cultural value you need to extract from an old floppy, hard drive or computer, you can contact us to see whether we can help you in the future to get access to it again. The project is now in the process of gathering all the necessary hardware and software to preserve these works, so if you have old equipment lying around that you no longer need and could be useful for the project, please contact PACKED vzw, and help us save our born-digital heritage.
