Established in 2002, the Appalshop Archive cares for an extensive media collection that includes thousands of hours of 16mm film, videotape and audio recordings as well as photographic negatives and prints, paper documents and material ephemera that portray a multifaceted view of life and history in central Appalachia.
In order to sustain and improve access to the collections, the Archive is in need of upgrades to its physical infrastructure. Renovations will create expanded storage and environmentally sound work spaces where archive staff can safely process, preserve, and digitize archival materials. The Archive's ability to make a wealth of currently inaccessible materials available to community members as well as scholars, researchers, and the public, will grow with improvements to its infrastructure.
With architectural and engineering plans drafted, we are now embarking on a 4-year capital campaign made possible by an Infrastructure and Capacity Building $125,000 Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. To meet the Challenge, we must match it 3 to 1 and raise $375,000 to leverage a total of $500,000.
Please consider making a donation to help ensure the longevity of and improved access to Appalshop Archive's rich holdings.
