In 2022, the Australasian Registrars Committee (ARC) returns to Canberra where 30 something years ago, the organisation was founded. This conference celebrates the contributions that ARC and its members have made to the industry. Across about thirty sessions we explore some of the successes, issues, and challenges registrars and collection managers encounter in our dynamic and ever-changing sector.

The ARC2022 (30 something) Conference is a hybrid event with tickets available to attend either in person or virtually. In person attendance is at the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, Canberra ACT. If you’re not able to make the journey to Canberra, join us as a Digital Delegate. Digital Delegate tickets give you online streaming access to our speaker sessions on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 March 2022. These sessions will be recorded and available via our Conference portal for up to 12 months to registered delegates.

Proceedings on both Thu 10 and Fri 11 March 2022 will conclude by 5pm AEDT. In-person attendee numbers for both days are limited, so online registration is required for both days.

*We have one spot left in the 2022 programme. Go to our News section for more information or email [email protected].
