The Southeast

Community Archiving Workshop – A Regional Training of Trainers: Southeast Region

This project support training and workshops for three organizations in the Southeastern United States.  Organizations are trained in the basics of audiovisual preservation and in holding their own Community Archiving Workshops. The Audiovisual Heritage Center (AVHC) is a project of Metro Nashville Archives and the Nashville Public Library and serves as the hub organization for this training.

The Southeastern United States has a rich history vital to the development of American culture and heritage. It is known for its diverse craft traditions, foodway traditions, its development of musical genres including folk, blues, country; its enormous role in the history of civil rights and as a center for Native American heritage. The region contains hundreds of museums and historical societies known to contain audiovisual collections, and countless other cultural documents are likely to live in community centers and personal collections. 

Readers may note that the training modules for the Training of Trainers (TOT) skip from Day 1 to Day 3. This is because Day 2 was the actual CAW workshop, in which the collection was inventoried.
