New York AV Archives Week Party
New York Archives Week is set to take place October 14th-21st, with special planning from the Archivists Roundtable of Metropolitan New York (NYART) here in the City, including the annual awards ceremony to take place on October 15th.
This year AVPreserve will participate by hosting an Archival Audiovisual Screening Night Party in our new office space in Industry City, Brooklyn on Monday, October 19th. We are currently seeking submissions of video content from NYART members and other regional archives (New Jersey, you’re A-OK!) to screen at the event in order to promote archives in the region as well as the need for preservation of audiovisual collections. If anyone has been to our SAA AV Archives Night Party, this will be a similar event, with an area for viewing and an area for hanging out and meeting colleagues. Suffice to say, refreshments will be provided, and it is hoped that a good time will be had by all.
We will post further information as the program comes together. If you are an NYC area archive interested in screening a clip or multiple clips up to 7 minutes in duration, contact josh[at]avpreserve[dot]com for submission details. Our offices are located at 253 36th Street, Brooklyn, near the express stop at 36th for the D, N, R trains. Office dogs may be present for lap-sitting…
