Resources include the Artist’s Legacy Toolkit, a free online suite of guidelines, tools and templates to help independent artists and dance companies organize, preserve, and plan for the legacy of their records.
Programs include Fellowships in Dance Archiving and Preservation, which pairs students pursuing Library Science studies with professional mentors in dance research institutions, and assigns them to complete archiving projects with local dance artist and organizations. Read about past projects and Fellows’ blogs, and find information about how to apply.
Dance/USA also provides consultations and hands-on assistance to dance companies to conduct archive assessments, improve records management systems, create inventories and descriptive records, and digitize moving image materials.
Questions about Dance/USA’s archiving activities should be directed to the Director of Archiving and Preservation and the Archiving Specialist.
