From Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz – ATTENTION POETRY SLAM! The Performance Poetry Preservation Project (P4) is actively collecting your old media to preserve!
What slammer doesn’t have a box / crate / tub of old slam material! Did with it comes to digital media — slams you’ve recorded on VHS tape / CD / DVD / Audio tape / Minidisk / etc… — there is a shelf life to them… provided you even own the technology anymore that allows you to play! So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider donating them to P4 so that these rare recordings can be properly preserved and archived!
BONUS: P4 is happy to pay for shipping!
Please contact P4 founder Wess Mongo Jolley for more information!
