The cultural memories stored on disintegrating media are being lost forever. We need to archive and preserve documentaries and independent programming that may just disappear. Minnesota Media Arts is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization fostering the production, preservation and access to works of media arts. We were founded as the Twin Cities Cable Arts Consortium in 1985 to promote and distribute arts programming. We are working with Minnesota's creative, cultural, artistic organizations and individuals to better manage and stabilize their media collections to preserve our cultural heritage. We do this by offering educational resources and media archive project coordination, production and distribution services.
