Disability and Audiovisual Archival Access

16 Oct 2020

As a follow up to the previous day’s webinar on Disability Consciousness Raising, this session will provide a number of perspectives on actionable ways audiovisual archivists can better provide access to their collections and online, as well as to their physical spaces.


Disability Consciousness & Audiovisual Archival Access

15 Oct 2020

The COVID-19 crisis has further heightened the need, understanding and collective awareness of online remote access to collections for all people—including those with disabilities. This webinar was programmed in response to requests for additional training during last year’s “Visible and Invisible Disabilities” Focus Group hosted by AMIA and the NFPB. In an effort to raise collective awareness around these issues, AMIA is delighted to have Drs. Raphael Raphael and Tom Conway (of the University of Hawai’i Center on Disability Studies) share their expertise and experience.


2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Your Window to the World"

Add your event!

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October - is a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honour audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that safeguard our heritage for future generations. Around the world audiovisual archives join together annually on this day to celebrate their work with events that not only highlight the vulnerability of these valuable materials, but also to celebrate the often unheralded work of the institutions that provide protection and preservation, ensuring their availability in the future.

This year, the theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is "Your Window to the World".
