Radical reimagining: interplays of physical and virtual
Join us at DCDC23, as we return in person at Durham University and online, 11-13 July 2023. Reconnect with peers, share stories, celebrate past successes, discuss future opportunities, and explore our History Day exhibition, all live in Durham for the first time in two years.
For delegates unable to join us in-person, we’re pleased to offer registration to our online platform. Here you will find access to view and participate across a programme of live sessions and opportunities to network through our event discussion forum and chat.
Throughout the conference we will reflect on the interplay between the physical and the virtual, the ‘materiality’ of physical collections and digital interventions.
DCDC23 offers an opportunity to explore the new ways of working within the GLAMA (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums and Academia) sector and is an invitation to collectively imagine the sector's new hybrid material futures, as well as the future of DCDC as a vehicle for collaboration, creativity and community.
The National Archives and Jisc are delighted to welcome the British Library as a new partner in the delivery and organisation of the interdisciplinary Discovering Collections: Discovering Communities (DCDC) conference series.
