Behind the Scenes at the Kennedy Center Archives
June 30, 1:00 – 2:00 pm
This webinar will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the process of establishing an institutional archives at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts ahead of its 50th anniversary season later this year. The Kennedy Center opened in 1971 as a living memorial to President Kennedy in recognition of his devotion to the advancement of the performing arts in the United States. To fulfill its mission as the nation’s cultural center, the Kennedy Center presents world-class art by the artists that define our culture today, delivers powerful arts education opportunities nationwide, and embodies the ideals of President Kennedy in all the Center’s activities provided throughout the living memorial.
