2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Your Window to the World"

Add your event!

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

This year, the theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is "Your Window to the World".
