The call for papers has been announced for the DCDC21 ConferenceCatalysts for change: transforming our practices, collections, and communities through times of crisis, which returns to a virtual platform on 28 June – 2 July 2021.

DCDC21 will explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums, and cultural organisations. It will explore the impact that crisis can have on working practices, collections, and audience engagement, and how periods of turbulence can lead to new opportunities for research and collaboration. It will seek to examine how cultural heritage organisations can look beyond times of crisis and foster innovation and collaboration in their institutions and communities.

DCDC is a cross-sectoral conference series, hosted by The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc, that brings together an unparalleled variety of experiences drawn from across the GLAM and research sectors, from across the UK, Europe, and further afield.

The full call for papers and further details on the conference can be found on the DCDC website.
