Audiovisual Heritage Commission

The Audiovisual Heritage Commission works around the setting up of projects devoted to the promotion, the safeguard and the digitization of the audiovisual archives of the Euro-Mediterranean broadcasters, with the purpose of preserving and enhancing the audiovisual heritage of this region. The main achievement of this Commission was the successful realization of the Med-Mem: Audiovisual Mediterranean Memories project, the first website in three languages – Arabic, English and French – made of radio and TV archives and created to promote the rich Mediterranean heritage among the general public from the two shores. The working group is also the promoter of a second multilateral project, Balkans’ Memory, aiming at raising awareness among the decision-makers from the Balkans region on the safeguard, the digitization and the management of their own cinematographic and audiovisual heritage.
