Impressions of our trainingprogramme @Shilpakhala Academy Bangladesh on 11 February 2019. We delivered a training on Right to Information and Right to records to staffs of the Academy.

Discussing the impact of the Right to Information Act (2009) and how it boosts better archives management in an institution like Shilpakhala Academy.

Florus Geraedts, Sigfried Janzing, Elias Kanchon and Shahedul Chowdhury of BARMS and BARM Netherlands, were invited to deliver a speech for the staffs of the Academy by Hasan Mahmud, Public Relations Officer of the Academy, also Right to Information officer responsible for the execution of the Act in the Institution.

Actually the effect of the RTI Act is a transition from secrecy to openness, the citizens of the country getting legally enforceable right to obtain FULL and ACCURATE information about actions and decisions of government institutions, as such also from the Academy.

So good record keeping has become an essential business activity for any institution.

It takes time to bring this into practice but our meeting shows the commitment of officers, managers and staffs of Shilpakala Academy to make it their daily practice! Next steps in archives are expected and we deliver our continuous support to this development at the Academy!
