IMAP - Independent Media Arts Preservation

Independent Media Arts Preservation, Inc. (IMAP) is a nonprofit service, education, and advocacy organization committed to the preservation of non-commercial electronic media. IMAP has grown from a New York-based consortium of arts organizations and individuals to a national resource for preservation training, information, and advocacy. IMAP's core constituents include institutions, organizations, and individuals whose diverse media collections are underserved by existing preservation efforts. IMAP's scope includes video art, audio art, new media, and technology-based installation art; independent documentary and community media; and documentation of arts and culture. While IMAP's primary focus is on electronic media, it also works closely with groups focused on the preservation of film, performance, interdisciplinary, and multimedia work.
