#PreserveAfricaArchives | BMA's To Survey Industry On Status And Future Of Audio-Visual Archives

As part of the ongoing Industry Programme on the "Preservation Of Africa's Audio Visual Media Assets", Broadcast Media Africa (BMA) is announcing a series of focused industry surveys and data collecting exercises to explore and understand the status and conditions of audio-visual archives in Africa's broadcast media sector.

Working with a leading industry expert, Apricity Consulting, the industry-wide surveys will seek to access, track and record the valued opinion of content archivists and preservationists from both the operational and leadership perspectives across the Radio and Television broadcasting sectors in Africa.

Commenting on the launch of this essential pan-industry data-gathering initiative, BMA's Publisher, Benjamin Pius, said: "We are working with our broadcasting organisations partners across Africa to establish the current operations of their audio-visual archives, and to see how, together, the industry can begin to sustainably preserve archived content in the context of the digital ecosystem."

"We want to thank our partners at Apricity Consulting for helping with creating the surveys, and special thanks to the Programme's Advisory Board for helping to guide directions. The outcomes of each of the survey conducted will be presented and shared freely with industry," Benjamin concluded.
