CCP’s World Audiovisual Heritage Day Program
The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) joins the rest of the world in celebrating the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on October 27, 2020, with the theme, Your Window to the World.
This day is is a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honor audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that safeguard our heritage. Audiovisual archives join together annually on this day to celebrate their work with events that not only highlight the vulnerability of these valuable materials but also to celebrate the often, unheralded work of institutions that provide protection and preservation, ensuring their availability in the future.
Through its vimeo channel, the CCP joins the celebration from 27 October to 3 November 2020, by streaming a collection of images showing how Filipinos responded through various creative ways, to the challenges brought about by COVID-19. For despite the pandemic, CCP still wants to make art matter to the life of everyone.
