Abstract

Establishing an archival strategy for digital artwork is key in preserving our digital heritage, safeguarding knowledge and stimulating future creative inquiry. NEoN (North East of North) uses a festive platform to disseminate its aim of promoting digital and technology driven art. Through 6 years of festival activity NEoN holds many digital assets and valuable documentation of digital artworks. We are now investigating the importance of preservation, dissemination and legacy of these digital assets and considering the values and resources required to develop an archiving strategy. This chapter discusses the journey of that investigation and reflects upon the diverse approaches to archiving digital arts.
