Introduction to Archival Programs for Performing Arts Institutions
Live Online $0.00 / $0.00


With many performing arts organizations operating for some time, legacy records have been created that can benefit not only staff but also the public. Join us for an introduction to what archival programs do and how they can help your organization.

This class will be organized into two parts. First, participants will learn what practical actions they can take now with minimal resources and then learn about program components for consideration in the future.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

Learn what archives do and what archival work entails
Understand what materials are considered historical
Acquire skills in basic preservation and safe storage practices, including electronic materials
Become aware of what is needed to develop archival programs over time
