World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 27 October 2020

By Mikael Johnasson

2020 Theme: Your Window to the World

“Audiovisual materials as documentary heritage objects provide a Window to the World as we observe events we cannot attend, we hear voices from the past who can no longer speak, and we craft stories that inform and entertain. Audiovisual content plays an increasingly vital role in our lives as we seek to understand the world and engage with our fellow beings.”
