Celebrate the New Year with CCTV Archives!
In collaboration with CCTV's Meghan O'Rourke and Luna Zeitlyn, Pennington Productions founder Myles David Jewell presents a multi-TV installation of CCTV Archives in the lobby of City Hall. Each set displaying archival footage of Burlington New Year’s Eves from the ’80s and ’90s, including parade footage from 1984, a slew of community performances from ‘86, ‘89, ‘91, ‘97 and the Millenium Celebration from 1999-2000! See the streets of Burlington, hear from community performers and experience the fabric of the city through the lens of VHS. This footage, since digitized by CCTV's archivist Jordan Mitchell, was recorded originally by CCTV founder Nat Ayer and other community members. Learn about your Community Archive and Community Media Access, CCTV (also known as Channel 17), through a short video to contextualize the archive. Hear from co-founder Lauren-Glenn Davitian and see footage of Nat Ayer in action. Take a virtual tour of the archives!!! Who knows, maybe you’ll want to make community TV too! Have fun on New Year's Eve and stop in to City Hall! Tickets to Highlights can be purchased here: https://highlight.community/tickets/
