Save the Channel 8 Archives!
Tuesday 03 March 2015
Channel 8 has more than 30 years of video history in our archives. There are about 1900 tapes in our attic that are rapidly degrading. Tapes need to be digitized for our permanent archive, and for local viewing and use.We are in the midst of a campaign to raise $8,000 in order to digitize 10% of our tape collection. Digitizing tapes will allow us to use, share, and preserve this valuable content.
What can you do?
All donations are appreciated. Check out our campaign here. Keep an eye on our fundraising campaign page, and our Facebook page, because we'll be posting more highlights from the archives throughout the next two months.
We are looking for a broad support base from people who have been involved in Channel 8 over the years, including folks who have moved away from our community. We couldn't possibly track down contact information for all of the friends of Channel 8, so we hope that YOU will share the link with your friends near and far in an effort to reach as many potential supporters as we possibly can.
