The annual World Day for Audiovisual Heritage will again be hosted worldwide on 27 October.
Bertram Lyons, IASA Editor and working at AVPreserve, has posted the following:
The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage has become a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honour audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that help to safeguard this heritage for future generations despite the many technical, political, social, financial, and other factors that threaten its survival. Audiovisual archives around the world join together annually on 27 October to celebrate their work with activities and events that not only highlight the vulnerability of this heritage, but also celebrate the often unheralded work of the heritage institutions that protect it.
The theme of the World Day this year is "It's Your Story - Don't Lose It".
