These records document events and programs created and sponsored by The Smithsonian Associates (TSA). Both audio and videotapes are contained in the collection.

A copy was made and forwarded to the TSA, Office of Public Affairs. A brief synopsis of the activities represented in the collection can be found in the Smithsonian Associate magazine. Additionally, Smithsonian Productions made some of the audiotapes for broadcast over Radio Smithsonian.

The events represented in the collection are many and varied including the annual Kite Festival, film festivals, speakers and interviews, and other program highlights.
