Join archivists from the University of Washington Ethnomusicology Archives and the University of Washington Libraries Special Collections in celebration of World Audiovisual Heritage and Archives Day!  Archivists John Vallier and Hannah Palin will share favorite films, videotapes, and audio recordings from their collections showcasing our region’s rich audiovisual heritage.

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (10/27) is a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honor 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.

ABOUT THE ARCHIVES: The Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Eth­no­mu­si­col­ogy Archives has been col­lecting and curating unique ethnographic music recordings, videos and films since 1962. Its holdings of over 50,000 items include field recordings documenting music traditions of all kinds from most areas of the world, concert recordings of visiting musicians, and films and videos of a variety of musical events, as well as several hundred musical instruments. The Archives is also home to the Seattle Sounds Archiving and Preservation Project (SSAPP), a growing collection of local and regional music. The Archives serves the students and faculty in the UW Ethnomusicology Program, the broader university community, Pacific Northwest tribes, and an international clientele of musicians, students, and teachers.…
