Community AV Archiving Fair, New Orleans Registration (Community Members)
The annual meeting of the Association of Moving Image Archivists ( will be taking place in New Orleans November 29-December 2 and, as a part of this, AMIA members are joining forces with the New Orleans Video Access Center (NOVAC) for an all-day Community AV Archiving Fair. Aimed at helping local individuals and organizations improve their audiovisual archiving skills, the Community AV Archiving Fair invites independent media makers, collecting institutions, and community groups in the New Orleans area to bring their challenges, their media objects, and their data for a day of collaborative problem solving and training in collaboration with the AMIA community.

The fair is organized around a number of “stations,” each of which will be staffed by AMIA volunteers, and focus on a particular workflow, technique, or tool. Stations will likely include: Digitization Strategies, Inventory Strategies, Prioritizing Media for Digitization, File Management & Storage, Disaster Preparedness & Recovery, Tool/Resource Matchmaking, How to Run a Community Archiving Workshop, and more! Community members are requested to sign up in advance for sessions, which may include working one-on-one with AMIA volunteers who will help you to gain the skills needed to meet specific challenges and learn to use the tools that best fit your AV archiving and preservation needs.

Please register for the fair by completing this form. All contact information will be kept private. We will contact you again approximately one month from the event with a list and description of stations, and will ask you to register for time slots.
