The Mediterranean Memories (Med-Mem) project is led by the Institut National de l’Audiovisuel (INA) France and financed by the European Union (EU) as part of the Euromed Heritage IV programme. It seeks to upload the audiovisual archives of 18 partners—including 10 Mediterranean television networks, 3 professional bodies, the BA, as well as cultural and scientific specialists working in the audiovisual world—and provide it online to the general public. Realizing that the audiovisual heritage of the Mediterranean is a resource of exceptional value and has the potential to initiate and promote understanding and intercultural dialogue, Med-Mem offers a selection of more than 4000 videos from all around the Mediterranean. These videos will be showcased within their historical and cultural contexts with commentary in three languages, Arabic, English, and French. Med-Mem thus focuses on the conservation of an endangered cultural heritage and aspires to spread awareness about the legal aspects implicit in that conservation. As an associated member of the project, the BA has catalogued about 150 video segments from its holdings covering the different BA productions. It has also hosted 2 training workshops: Indexing for Med-Mem (October 2009) and Building a Plan for Safeguarding Audiovisual Archives (November- December 2010).
