The iconic Memory Crate which was locked on the 21st January, 2022 was a brainchild of The Northeast India AV Archive. In collaboration with the Department of Information and Public Relations, Government of Meghalaya, the Memory Crate which is a repertoire mostly of precious letters written by citizens was kept inside the crate. The Memory Crate also contains various photographs of Meghalaya, books and magazines written by prominent authors, postcards and calendars. It will be opened exactly fifty years from the previously mentioned date, which will celebrate the centenary of the attainment of Meghalaya's statehood.
