“Archives at Risk: Protecting the World’s Identities” is the slogan of this year’s celebration.

The world’s audiovisual heritage of sound recordings and moving images are extremely vulnerable as a result of factors ranging from neglect, natural decay to technological obsolescence, as well as deliberate destruction.
Consequently, UNESCO has made it part of its mission to raise public consciousness of the importance of preservation of these recordings through the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.
We encourage everyone, everywhere to join us in celebrating 27 October by showcasing precious collections so that present and future generations can enjoy the treasures that are our shared audiovisual heritage.
