Re:Use Clinic #1 - Archives and Copyright

15 June 2022 - 15:00 — 15 June 2022 - 17:00

On Wednesday 15 June 2022 Open Archief and Pictoright collaboratively organize ‘Re:Use Clinic #1, Archives and Copyright’, a public event for heritage professionals, artists and other interested parties, about creatively reusing heritage collections.

The first clinic is all about archives and copyright. Material from archival institutions can often not be reused “straight out of the box”, because copyright restrictions may apply.

But how can you find out about those copyrights? And by the way: what are copyrights? What are your options when it comes to (re)using copyrighted collections? What role can heritage institutions play, and what role do organizations such as Pictoright and other rights organizations play in making archival collections accessible and available for (re)use? Which brings us back to the bigger question of the importance of copyright protection in contrast to freely accessible material. Then, we can finally ask: what is the future of copyright?

These questions will all play an important role in our first Re:Use Clinic of 2022. Together with two specialists on the subject, Arlette Bekink and Elki Boerdam, we will talk about these matters and try to answer any question you might have.

The Open Archief Re:Use clinics are a series of public events for heritage professionals and interested parties in the creative reuse of heritage collections. The clinics address matters essential for reusing collections and for the process of makers. After hosting digital editions in 2021, Open Archief is very happy to host the 2022 Re:Use Clinics at the IISH in Amsterdam. These clinics are not just workshops but also a place for specialist care, with room for questions and discussion.
