Sound and Image heritage symposium to be held Friday, July 21

A symposium that seeks to promote the conservation of all types of cultural heritage through Photos, films, audio and video records is scheduled to come off at the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana on Friday July 21, 2017.


The event under the theme “Sound and Image Heritage: for Creativity, Peace & Development” will feature talks by educators, practitioners and policy makers as well as participants from the UNESCO Ghana office and the Ghana National Commission for UNESCO.

The Symposium’s objective which forms part of the 2017 (Sound and Image Collections Conservation) SOIMA International Course on Sustaining Sound and Image Collections being held in Ghana is to identify innovative solutions for sustaining and creatively using sound and image heritage.

“Wherever the collections of these records exist, they are being used to create jobs, feed research and provide multidimensional narratives of our past and present,” says Dr Stefano De Caro, the Director-General of the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM).

ICCROM is a Rome-based intergovernmental organization with 135 Member States, including Ghana whose focus is to increase capacity of museums, archives, libraries and other cultural institutions to preserve and provide access to sound and image collections.
