SUPPORT MEDIA ART HISTORY: DONATE NOW TO HAVE YOUR DONATION MATCHED
Western Front is dedicated to the preservation and sharing of its Media Archive, going back 40 years! Over the past two years, we have preserved, digitized and made available over 400 works—including, most recently Acts of Transfer.
To continue our important preservation work we need a significant upgrade to our equipment, in particular we need a new LTO-8 tape drive.
What is an LTO-8 tape drive you ask? Well, after we have transferred works from their obsolete tape format, the LTO drive provides long-term storage for these newly preserved and digitized archival materials. LTO is the recommended standard throughout industry and other archives and this crucial piece of equipment will ensure that our material is stable and safe.
We need your help to reach our goal of $8,000 to purchase this equipment.
Each donation will be matched by a generous donor and will be eligible for a full tax receipt. And donations of $100 or more will receive a complimentary, artist-designed, limited edition tea towel.
Help us preserve Western Front history!
