Archive has value, it is a living material, likely to seduce a young audience, to create a link between generations and citizens.
Our times, from containment to curfew, show us how much archives can be a resource for broadcasters and cultural institutions. But no need to wait for crisis times to think about access policies to archive material.

FRAME Access enables participants to draw inspiration from each other's projects, as well as from trainers’ experiences of trainers.
Through theoretical or feedback presentations, case studies and participative workshops, they will explore different access models, discover how to design an editorial strategy, address issues of rights management and documentation, which are all essential conditions to give access to audiovisual content. Innovation will be at the heart of the programme, but the basics of archiving will not be forgotten either.
