Millions of hours of film, television and radio are at Risk!
Worn by time, eaten away by acidity, victims of wars, dictatorships, or natural disasters, the audiovisual archives of humanity are in jeopardy. No country, even the most advanced in terms of digitization and conservation, will escape this risk of destruction.
We cannot resign ourselves to losing entire volumes of the worldwide audiovisual heritage and thus endangering the cause of preservation of the world's cultural identities. It is imperative to ensure that the world's population is able to transmit their audiovisual memory to future generations.
The objective of the Archives@Risk-project is to develop lobbying activities on behalf of endangered archives throughout the world, so that resources can be found to save and give access to the world audiovisual heritage. The first stage of the project is dedicated to setting up this web site, raising awareness of the imminence to this part of the worlds cultural heritage, offering professional media management resources, and identifying sources of funding for these archives.
