The Archipelago Network (A–N) is an initiative for research and documentation of endangered audiovisual heritage and material knowledge on the Cyclades islands, located in the Aegean sea. Through its archival preservation activities, interdisciplinary residencies and public programs, it takes up the Cycladic archipelago as a laboratory for field research and knowledge production, addressing pressing social and ecological questions of our time.
The organization’s team, based in Syros and Athens, consists of staff with extensive experience in audiovisual preservation and production, implementation of residency programs and cultural activities, as well as large-scale project management and coordination. An array of external advisors provide expertise on an ad-hoc basis in the fields of digitization, intellectual property law, and discipline-specific information related to individual projects.
