It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend SEAPAVAA’s 20th Conference to be held in Guam from the 6 to the 11 June 2016.
2016 is SEAPAVAA’s 20th Anniversary, an important milestone for us and this conference is a highlight of our year of celebration.
The conference theme is “Intellectual Property, Rights, and Audiovisual Archives: Reframing Boundaries and Possibilities”, and seeks to address the myriad of issues that audiovisual archives increasingly have to navigate regarding the legal and ethical environments surrounding intellectual property. From donors with various claims to users with urgent insatiable needs, audiovisual archives today are subject to these external factors while still searching for new possibilities in a changing world. The conference will also explore the potentially conflicting issues between general cultural heritage and specific indigenous rights and pose questions regarding what is the role of audiovisual archives in promoting human rights?
Besides participating in this important conference, we invite you to enjoy the unique culture and hospitality for which the Pacific is famous. It promises to be a different and immensely valuable and enjoyable experience.
– Mick Newnham, President, South East Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA)
