Kurdish Home Movie Preservation Project

The Kurdish Home Movie Preservation Project preserves home movies by first and second generation Kurdish families who have established a new home in Nashville.

Nashville is home to the largest Kurdish population in the United States, with an estimated 15,000 Kurds living mostly in South Nashville, yet the audiovisual collection contains no known footage of or by the Kurdish population. Now in its first year, this project seeks to support the preservation of culture by providing free video and audio preservation services. 

Our next round of preservation begins in late 2022. Please check back for more more information.
