ICCROM is pleased to announce

SOIMA 2015:
Unlocking sound and image heritage
See, Listen and Share
Brussels (BE)
3-4 September 2015

This is an international conference on ensuring a safe and creative
future for sound and image heritage.  Twelve national and
international institutions are supporting the event.

Recorded sound and images have captured our world, our lives and our
imagination.  Thanks to rapid advancements in social media and
information technologies, it has become much easier to share and use
sound and image content.  Yet contrary to common perception, not all
content is readily usable.  Today's knowledge on preservation and
access is fragmented, often trapped in separate areas of expertise,
presenting a challenge to content collectors and users.

The conference will bring together professionals and policy makers
with an interest in sound and image preservation by focusing on four

    Memory, Intangible Heritage and Creative Expressions
    Sustaining Sound and Image Heritage
    Creative Use and Access
    Education and Training: Current Needs and Future Possibilities

Join us.  If you have unique audio, photographic or video records
that deserve international attention, or if you are interested in
digital preservation, creative use and access, join us in this
inclusive and participatory event.  The conference will feature
inspirational talks by heritage practitioners, audiovisual experts,
business leaders, educators and policy makers, and will showcase
innovative examples of how sound and image heritage has been
preserved, made accessible and used. Collaboration, and exchange of
information and know-how between institutions and specialists is key
to unlocking this heritage.
