Archiving Dance Workshop: Digital Assets in partnership with Dance/USA
Join us for a user-friendly workshop on archiving digital assets, such as videos and photos. This workshop is especially for dance makers and anyone who has digital assets to track.
You’ll see all this and more illuminated by Shipra Shukla’s archiving work with Chitresh Das Dance Company & Chhandam School of Kathak. Dance/USA workshop co-leaders include Hallie Chametzky (Archiving Specialist) and Imogen Smith (Director of Archiving and Preservation). There will also be a Q&A opportunity.
This workshop was made possible by the California Arts Council, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, and the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
