ATNU at CAKE 15: Digital Archives

On Thursday 25th of January, ATNU will be speaking at the C.A.K.E. 15: Digital Archives. Jennifer Richards will be presenting our project’s aims, objectives and journey so far to a broad audience of cultural, technological and academic professionals and practitioners, as well as any interested members of the public.

C.A.K.E. (or Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange) events are organised by Creative Fuse North East. On the second Thursday of every month there is a new, themed C.A.K.E. event, bringing expert speakers delivering short presentations on opportunities for innovation in their sector.  Creative Fuse sees the regular C.A.K.E. events as an ‘important way of bringing a diverse range of North East skills, knowledge, and expertise together on a regular basis, to network, share knowledge and form unique working relationships’. For more on C.A.K.E. events, click here.

Joining Jennifer on stage will be Jenna Ashton, from the Digital Women’s Archive North, Stevie Ronnie, Freelance Writer and Artist, and Sue Bradley, Research Associate in Oral History with the Newcastle University Centre for Rural Economy (CRE).

Discussion and presentations will focus on the ‘Digital Archive’, exploring how digital technology can help and complement the much older print technology. The eclectic mix of speakers and attendees will help broaden the scope of the discussions beyond the academic boundary, in what promises to be an unmissable afternoon to all of those interested in text, archives, technology, cultural practice, and any mix of the above and more.

The event will be held in the Library of the Mining Institute in Newcastle, on Thursday 25th of January, at 3pm. If you want to attend, please register here. For more on CAKE 15: Digital Archives, and the speakers, follow this link.

And yes, there will be cake.
