The Society of American Archivists annual meeting is right around the corner, which means that AV Archives Night is here, too!
We have a lot in store this year (our fifth!) and hope you’ll join us and the amazing organizations who have generously submitted content to the film screening! This year’s theme is The Archives of PLACE | People Language Arts Community Experience and the submissions do an excellent job addressing these topics.
The event starts at 7:30 on Wednesday, August 15th, at Black Cat in DC.
Black Cat is located at 1811 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009.
The line up is still in development, but as of today (August 9) it is shaping up like this:
- 7:30. Doors open. Get yourself some food and drinks!
- 7:30. DJ Provenance
- 8:15 Film Screening: AV footage from archives across the US
- 9:30. The one and only all-archivist band: Glass Plate Zero!
- 10:30. DJ: Kristy la Rat (dj rAt) (Check out her collective @MaracuyeahDC)
(Please note that times are subject to change — we recommend arriving before 8.)
