World Day for Audiovisual Heritage: let’s celebrate!


On 27 October 2016 we will celebrate the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (WDAVH), sponsored by UNESCO and organized by the CCAAA (Co-ordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations), of which ICA (International Council on Archives) is a member.


The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is intended to highlight the good work being done around the world to preserve and make available this important heritage, and to encourage others to follow those examples. The theme this year is “It’s Your Story – Don’t Lose It”.

The CCAAA and ICA encourage all of you to contribute information about your World Day celebratory programme: in facts, on the occasion of the 2016 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the CCAAA is launching a new website, and all CCAAA associations are asking their members and any other institution to post information about their World Day events directly on that new website.

All you have to do is to fill in a simple online form which you will find on this special page of the website. Just follow the instructions!
