Thursday 27 October is a special day for many archivists, it’s UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. This year’s theme, ‘Save and savour your Audiovisual Heritage – Now!’ will be celebrated by many audiovisual archives around the world, including Australia’s National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra.
World Day for Audiovisual Heritage raises awareness of the importance of audiovisual archives and draws attention to the urgent need to safeguard them. Learn more information about these fragile and vulnerable archives.
