Event description
DCDC21 will explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums, and cultural organisations.

About this event

The DCDC21 Conference will be a virtual event, held from 28 June - 2 July.

DCDC21 will explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums, and cultural organisations. It will explore the impact that crisis can have on working practices, collections, and audience engagement, and how periods of turbulence can lead to new opportunities for research and collaboration. It will seek to examine how cultural heritage organisations can look beyond times of crisis and foster innovation and collaboration in their institutions and communities.

DCDC stands for Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities. We are a cross-sectoral conference, hosted by The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc, that brings together the GLAMA sectors (galleries, libraries, archives, museums and academia) to shine a light on our shared experiences, innovations, interests and concerns.

Open and inclusive in its ethos, the DCDC conferences bring together an unparalleled variety of experiences drawn from across the UK, Europe, and further afield. 

When: 28 June - 02 July 2021

Where: Virtual conference on the Pheedloop platform
