The Holden Audio Archive

The legacy and history of Holden Village belong to everyone. For more than six decades, teaching sessions, discussions and seminars have been faithfully recorded by Village volunteers, creating an audio collection of great breadth and importance. Thousands of hours of this material (in mp3 form) are already available online, for free, on this website. Eventually, this online collection will include most of the material recorded at Holden Village over the years as well as new audio recorded each summer.
