2021 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage
"Your Window to the World"
The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October - is 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.
The nine associations forming the CCAAA (AMIA, ARSC, FIAF, FIAT/IFTA, FOCAL International, IASA, ICA, SEAPAVAA, IFLA) strongly encourage all their members (and any other institutions) not only to join in the global celebrations of the 2021 World Day on and around 27 October, but also to share the information about their particular events on the CCAAA website.
