World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October.

World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October.

UNESCO has adopted 27 October as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage to better focus global attention on the issues at stake, in cooperation with the Co-ordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) and other partners. 

On October 27, 1980, UNESCO adopted the Recommendation for the Safeguarding and Preservation of Moving Images. During UNESCO’s conference in 2005, the General Conference passed a resolution to proclaim October 27th as World Day for Audiovisual Heritage History. The date commemorates the resolution passed 15 years earlier.

A growing number of archives around the world will be commemorating this Day with activities that highlight the fragility and vulnerability of this heritage, while celebrating the work of the heritage institutions that have helped to protect it.
