[ATTENTION: Please see our PUBLIC NOTICE to learn more about the status of our programs]
1. Filmmaking (documentary and film)
2. Visual Art Production
3. Professional capacity development for Liberian artists
4. National Audio-Visual Archive containing over 2000 hours of audio-visual recordings of Liberian historical events, activities, and interviews of eminent persons. We are especially proud of our collection of over 500 audio-visual recordings of Liberian historical events rescued from a collection that was being incinerated.
5. Repatriation of Liberian Art is a program with the goal of returning Liberian art taken out the country by art lovers. At the center of program are the Collection of Dougha Caranda (of Caranda Fine Foods, a Liberian art photographer and social entrepreneur resident in New York), and a former U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers who served in Liberia. These gentlemen have promised to turn over their Liberian collections to the BCA as soon as a museum is constructed. The former Peace Corps Volunteer also promised to lobby other volunteers to donate their Liberian art collections.
The Archive Section (BCA) is intended to document the life and events taking place in Liberia, including traditional festivals, traditional house construction, farming, palm oil making, settler and traditional burial ceremonies, etc. The recordings would include filming conversations with a cross-section of Liberian people of all ages. This will be properly catalogued and stored in an appropriate facility and made available to the public, research, scholars, and students.
