We are happy to announce that we have opened registration for the 2018-2019 NDSR Art Capstone event, The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure.

During this symposium, NDSR Art residents from MICA’s Decker Library, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Small Data Industries will present possible solutions for the acquisition, preservation, and access of digital art and art information, from preserving born-digital documentation of the museum experience to working with at-risk artists’ archives. This event will also present an opportunity for attendees with different backgrounds to participate in discussions surrounding appraisal of digital media for GLAM institutions, development of artists’ archives, and DIY strategies for digital preservation.

Additionally, this one-day symposium will bring together digital archivists, digital curators, librarians, and artists to talk about digital art stewardship. Our guest speakers include Caroline Gil Rodríguez, Ayodamola Tanimowo Okunseinde (ayo), Jazmyn Castro, and Bárbara Calderón. Check out our speakers page to learn more about them.

This event is free and open the public. However, we are offering the option to purchase a prepaid lunch catered by Dooby’s (we do encourage folks to bring lunch or choose the prepaid option as lunch options around the area are limited). More details here.
