Do you ever wonder what on earth we do all day at Media Burn?

Now’s your chance to find out!

Over thirty local archives, research centers, and cultural institutions in the Chicago area will offer special events open to members of the public in October 2017.This year’s Chicago Open Archives theme, Hidden Stories in the Archives, invites audiences to explore the stories that local collections tell.

While most of our videos are available for the public to watch on our website at any time, our physical archive is not usually open to the public. However, this special event will give visitors an opportunity to tour our facilities and see a short screening of some highlights from the collection.
