Video Active was one of the co-organisers of the Economies of the Commons conference, which took place in Hilversum and Amsterdam over the last three days. The conference brought people together from all corners of the world to current issues related to the emerging audiovisual culture on the web. Keynote speakers included David Bollier, Peter Kaufman and Rick Prelinger. The presentation of the Video Active was positioned in the track “The European Digital Library”. Project partners DR, INA and SLBA shared their on-house services in the track “Audiovisual Archives”. Complete coverage of the event can be found online at the Images for the Future Research Blog and the Conference website where archived recordings of all sessions will be made available soon.
