Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities (DCDC) is an annual conference for the archive, library, museum and academic sectors.
Open and inclusive in its ethos, DCDC provides a platform for colleagues to come together in joint conversation, looking beyond their own specialisms to forge new partnerships and enhance the social, cultural, and economic impact of our unique collections.
The call for papers for DCDC21 is now open. Proposals should be submitted by 22 January 2021. Visit the DCDC website for more information.
The DCDC21 conference
The DCDC21 conference will explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums and cultural organisations. It will look at 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.
