Programmers and Archivists Workshop


The Sarai Programme and the Centre for the Study of Culture and Society’s Digital Innovation Fund are organising a meeting on Sunday, 27th January to present and discuss the futures of Pandora and Open Media Library, two open media archiving/sharing software projects by Jan Gerber and Sebastian Lütgert, and to explore key questions and challenges around digital archiving in India.

Pan.do/ra (https://pan.do/ra) is a framework for online video archiving, analysis and annotation, originally developed for 0xDB (https://0xdb.org) and Pad.ma (https://pad.ma), and since then adopted by a variety of other initiatives, like Indiancine.ma (https://indiancine.ma), bak.ma (https://bak.ma) and 858 (https://858.ma).

Open Media Library (https://openmedialibrary.com), a more recent project, is a local document management application, focused on digital books, that allows for peer-to-peer exchange of files between libraries.

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the discussions to help us chart the way forward for digital archiving challenges in India and to brainstorm on collaborative archiving projects. To register your interest please fill out this google form: https://goo.gl/forms/egeDDjcLe9fQcl8v1 by 5 pm, Friday 25th January. We will confirm your participation via email.
