This webinar is a project presentation from one of our esteemed 2022 Equity In Action Grant recipients!
New York Public Radio implemented a Field Recording Cataloging Project that described approximately 1,278 MiniDiscs. This cataloging project assisted in the preservation of field recordings made by WNYC reporters whose ‘beats’ focused on underserved communities, communities of color, the homeless, health, the environment, social services, the police, and the courts.
About this grant program: The METRO Equity in Action Grant program aims to support member institutions by providing funding that assists with new and ongoing efforts to preserve our cultural history. We endeavor to fund digital projects that focus on anti-racist practices and marginalized communities. Rooted in community and collaboration, this program encourages partnerships between organizations in order to cultivate a mutual knowledge exchange that empowers both parties and creates a pipeline for access.
