Inaugural recipients announced: Aboriginal audio digitization and preservation program

Tsawwassen First Nation and the Upper St’át’imc Language, Culture, and Education Society are the inaugural recipients of the Aboriginal Audio Digitization and Preservation Program (AADPP). The AADPP, a pilot initiative led by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, provides grants for B.C. Aboriginal organizations to convert audio cassette tapes to digital formats for preservation and access. Current plans are to offer equipment, training and funding support for up to six projects per year, with applications accepted twice a year. Visit the Indigitization site for more information.
