Dance Heritage Coalition (DHC) will share the Artist’s Legacy Toolkit, a suite of free online resources designed to provide practical, adaptable guidance to dance artists and administrators on the many aspects of archiving, preservation, and records management. In addition to introducing these resources and providing time for feedback, DHC will answer questions and discuss best practices for digitizing videotapes, organizing and securing digital assets, conducting assessments and inventories of decades’ worth of records, finding archival partners, establishing an in-house archive, and the emerging vision of “artist-driven archives”. This workshop will inspire artists and administrators to think creatively about developing manageable solutions to ensure the survival of artistic legacies.

Online consumption of entertainment and information has exploded over the last few years. Has the dance world’s attitude towards our digital presence shifted in response? Have there been changes in our ideas about intellectual property and the relationship between live and recorded performance? While individual artists and organizations are devoting more resources to online visibility, our digital offerings as a field remain largely fragmented, low-quality, ruthlessly-excerpted, and lacking curatorial integrity. This interactive panel will enlist your creativity in envisioning a digital-access path supported by stakeholders from throughout the dance field. How can dance organize and pool our digital resources to better support the development of new audiences, young artists, and dance scholarship? Come, and help us find out!
