PACKED is the Dutch acronym for Platform for the Archiving and Preservation of Audiovisual Arts. Based in Brussels, the platform was created in 2005 by argos, MuHKA (Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp), S.M.A.K (Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art - Ghent), and MDD (Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle). PACKED acts as an umbrella organization for the development and dissemination of knowledge on the cataloguing, preservation and distribution of audiovisual arts. Its objective is to provide the knowledge obtained to museums, collections, artists, and the broader field of cultural heritage.
