The Archaeology Channel Conference on Cultural Heritage Media, organized by Archaeological Legacy Institute, is a gathering for the discussion of audiovisual media for the study, preservation, and promotion of cultural heritage. This is a collaborative effort to further the development of cultural heritage media as a strong and positive influence for people everywhere. We focus on topics of interest to cultural heritage professionals, media professionals, and all those interested in applications of cultural heritage media.
Our goal is to create an unparalleled worldwide networking opportunity for cultural heritage filmmakers and others interested in the making and uses of cultural heritage media, including archaeologists, indigenous groups, musicians, artists, tourism operators, journalists, educators, historic preservation organizations, and others.
