AV Archives Night || Ensuring Access @ SAA 2014

Join us at the Black Cat DC for our first annual AV Archives Night party. AVPreserve is hosting this free event to celebrate the unique cultural heritage of the DC, Baltimore, and northern Virginia area as told through audio and moving image materials. Archivists from around the region will be showing off content from their collections ranging from field recordings of folk music, to home movies, dance performances, and maybe even some tunes from the local music scene. All of this is possible, of course, because of the great work archivists do to preserve their collections and make them accessible. Come revel in a DC landmark and support your community. Hope to see you there.
