For Immediate Release: Summer 2017 Preservation Access Program Recipients

Published On: April 25, 2017 |

San Francisco, CA – The Preservation Access Program (PAP) is our popular, ongoing funding program for artists and small arts organizations seeking to preserve magnetic media in their collections. Thanks to a generous subsidy provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, BAVC Media is able to provide preservation services to successful applicants at heavily discounted rates.

We have just completed selection for our Spring 2017 round of PAP. This, our eighth PAP, received the largest pool of applicants to date. Selection is a terribly difficult task, but we are thrilled to be able to offer our services to some incredible organizations and individuals. We wanted to share this exciting news with our community. The recipients listed below were chosen for both the quality of their application and their willingness to commit to long-term preservation goals.

For more information about the program, check out our PAP information page, or contact BAVC Media’s Preservation Department via email at or by phone at 415.558.2158.
