‘Our archive. your story’ pays tribute to the south of Luxembourg and its emblematic sites highlighted by Esch 2022. Due to its location in the heart of Luxembourg’s south, the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA) has naturally received over time numerous documents relating to the towns and villages of the mining basin. These documents are a testament to the rise and the gradual fall and disappearance of the steel industry, but they also more generally trace the economic, social, cultural, family and daily life of the region.
The objective of the project entitled ‘our archive – your story’ is to raise awareness among a wide and diverse audience of the importance of Luxembourg’s audiovisual heritage and its conservation by reaching out to people and meeting them where they live, in their towns and villages. This will allow us to raise new funds for the CNA's archives, help enrich our collections and thus preserve the audiovisual memory of Luxembourg’s southern regions.
