What strategies are audio archivists implementing to address the pressing preservation concerns encountered in recorded sound collections?  What are the exciting opportunities for access to recorded sound collections presented by digital technologies, and how are these opportunities reconciled with the realities of copyright and privacy concerns?  How can archival audio collections be employed in community outreach initiatives?  And how can we effectively communicate the enduring importance of the archival audio record in a world increasingly oriented toward moving image media?

Join us for a series of talks on these and other topics by archivists from three of New York's most treasured archival collections of recorded sound!  Speakers will include Marcos Sueiro Bal from the WNYC New York Public Radio Archives, Talya Cooper from StoryCorps, and Jonathan Hiam from the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

Also joining us will be David Gerlach from the animation company Blank on Blank.  David will speak on Blank on Blank's process of creating captivating animations that bring rare audio interviews with cultural icons to life, providing for an entirely new way of providing access to and illuminating archival audio recordings!

A.R.T. would like to thank SAA@Pratt for graciously co-sponsoring this program.
