The report elaborated by the Ibero-American Network for the Preservation of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (Spanish acronym RIPDASA) shows that a high percentage of Ibero-American collections are not accessible and they are endangered by the fragility of the media. Some of these collections are at risk of being lost forever if we don't take the necessary actions to preserve them. This workshop aims to draw attention to the delicate situation of these archives by establishing a dialogue between professionals, international organizations and the industry based on fundamental ideas such as: digitalization, preservation and professional training.

El informe elaborado por la Red Iberoamericana de Preservación de Archivos Sonoros y Audiovisuales pone de manifiesto que un porcentaje muy elevado de los acervos iberoamericanos corre el riesgo de desaparecer si no se adoptan las medidas necesarias para su preservación. Este seminario tiene como objetivo llamar la atención sobre la delicada situación de estos archivos fomentando el diálogo entre los profesionales, las organizaciones internacionales y la industria entorno a varias ideas fundamentales: la digitalización, la preservación, el acceso y la formación de profesionales.

Part 4: Closing debate: towards critically rethinking archives in Latin America / Hacia un pensamiento crítico de los archivos en América Latina - moderated by: Luisa Ordoñez (Caracol Televisión, Colombia)
