The 2020 International Workers’ Day is a very peculiar one that will not be celebrated on the streets, but at home – hopefully live-streaming the many events that are taking place around the world reflect on the many issues around the right to work and the right of dignity at work. As the Covid-19 global epidemic is having an enormous impact on workers across the globe, and will have a strong impact in the foreseeable future, way beyond the current epidemics, archivists need to be first in line to record and preserve the memories of these changes.


télétravailFor this reason, Archives Portal Europe is happy to adhere to the campaign on memories of the pandemics launched by several partners and Content Providers – in particular, the Archives Nationales du Monde du Travail (National Labour Archives) in France are collecting the memories of working (or not working) under the lockdown, with the collective project #memoiredeconfinement – how is your First of May under lockdown?

You can send your documents (photographs, audio-visual, writings) to anmt@culture.gouv.fr – more information here

Check if your country has a collection point for your memories of the lockdown here; alternatively, if you wish to share documents from your lockdown, you can send them to info@archivesportaleurope.net and specify if you are happy for us to publish them and to quote your name. You can also publish them yourself with the hashtags #memoiredeconfinement and #pandemicsmemoir

Time Machine Austria Info Day

Vienna (Austria), 22 January 2020

The Time Machine is organising a Time Machine Austria Info Day on the
22nd January.  The Time Machine project  is an initiative supported by the European Union that seeks fundamental breakthroughs in the development of technologies for
cultural heritage (archives, museums, libraries, archaeology, cultural heritage, etc.). The resulting Big Data of the Past would allow to develop applications of all kinds that open up new approaches to history and culture.

This event will provide you with up-to-date information on the Time Machine project and the recently founded Time Machine Organisation. Further presentations of ground-breaking Austrian projects in the field of technology and cultural heritage will complete the Info Day.

The detailed programme and further information on the Time Machine project can be found on the event page here. It is possible to register (by 15 January 2020) at this link.

Registration is free-of-charge. Event language will be German.
