8th ICARUS Croatia Days
Enhancing Heritage Experience – Exploring Cultural Routes
ICARUS Croatia in collaboration with the consortium ICARUS, E-ROUTES project, State archives in Šibenik and other partners announce its 8th conference ICARUS Croatia Days entitled Enhancing heritage experience – exploring cultural routes.
This year the conference is organised within the framework of the Creative Europe project Time travel routes through Europe – E-ROUTES (e-routes.eu) and it is addressing the growing need to present and promote scattered cultural heritage and contemporary artistic production related to travel experience in Europe both in the past and in the present time.
The Call for Papers is open: click here!
The authors of accepted proposals will present their papers live at the conference venue in Šibenik, Croatia during the conference days.
Additional information and the submission form link are available on our websites https://www.icarushrvatska.hr and https://e-routes.eu, with direct connection to the submission form at: https://bit.ly/3huGpcR
We invite you to join us at the conference, as well as to share information about it with all colleagues that might be interested!
ICARUS Convention #30:
‘Archives and Traces of Migration’
The ICARUS Convention #30 will take place from 3rd to 5th of May 2023 in Sittard and in Maastricht, Netherlands!
Registration is closed.
The convention’s thematic priority
Thematic priority of the convention will be how archives in (and outside) Europe deal with migration and especially with the archival material regarding the migration. Do they own any materials about migration, do they actively collect them? Are these materials being made visible (and how)? Are archives working together with universities to scientifically research and evaluate them? And with museums to present them?
Migration is a theme that is very important in our days, but migration is, of course, of all times. Traces of it are therefore visible in archives throughout Europe. We will see and hear examples how these kinds of archives have been handled in the past and how they are handled now. Can we learn from each other?
There will be time to present and discuss the theme (participants of the Creative Europe-project AToM (Archives and Traces of Migration) will take the lead in this). There will be discussion, exchange, the sharing of experiences and the development of possible solutions and strategies will be explored.
But also other projects in which archives in Europe are involved, like the TimeMachines, will be invited to present themselves. Also projects of the Icarus-community (like Monasterium, Matricula and the very successful Topotheque) will be given the chance to give an update of their progress at this meeting.
The convention’s structure
The convention will act as a sharing place where professionals and user communities will have the possibility to present, discuss and share their ideas, visions and concrete projects, with the aim to prepare new partnerships, as well as the planning and implementation of possible new projects.
During the three days of the convention there will be the possibility to do presentations, workshops, discussions, ‘exchange-tables’ and ‘cooperation-tables’.
Registration is closed.
