Regional Media Legacies Project Update
Friday, October 23, 6:00 PM ET - 7:15 PM ET
RSVP here

Please join us for a project update and celebration of the Regional Media Legacies Project. Made possible with support from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.

In 2019, New York University's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) program launched the Regional Media Legacies (RML) project. Media made for regional audiences, especially those housed in organizations that lack archival resources or the skills of audiovisual specialists, often constitute what libraries and archives call hidden collectionsrare recordings that capture local history and culture in a way that larger and better-resourced media collections often do not. The archival profession and scholarly community now recognize that local television, home movies, the works of independent artists, and region-specific productions tend to document lives and communities that are often invisible to national media and the entertainment industry.

At this project update event, we will be sharing samples of research and conservation work accomplished by our Fellow Robert Anen over the last year working with organizations such as Sea Cliff Village Museum, Long Island Studies Institute, and Mineola Historical Society; and the work our second Fellow Claire Fox has been engaged in since joining the team in September 2020 working with LTV (Local Television) Archive, and planning a series of webinars dedicated to digital preservation topics. We will also present on work done by MIAP graduate students at internships with Brooklyn Historical Society, Booklyn, Weeksville Heritage Center, and a summer working with the RML Project team. In addition, we will share upcoming plans for work with other organizations such as the Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, Railroad Museum of Long Island, and more.

It’s been wonderful for us to learn more about the local region, and to experience media with unique historic and artistic content. We look forward to sharing with you all!

Free and open to the public.
