The AV Trust has applied for financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage to further enhance the professional skills of Canadian audio-visual archivists. To this end, the AV Trust is offering grants to help defray the travel and/or registration costs (up to a maximum of $1000 CDN) of Canadian-based archivists who apply through a Canadian non-profit organization wishing to participate in the next Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) conference, scheduled to take place in Savannah, Georgia November 12-15, 2008. This annual conference will provide training forums, workshops and similar learning opportunities focusing on the preservation and conservation of audio-visual materials.
The AV Trust Travel Assistance deadline is July 14, 2008. To download a copy of the application form, visit www.avtrust.ca.
