We know that “Archives Change Lives.” Come explore how Archives Can Change Communities and Communities Can Change Archives!

THE LIBERATED ARCHIVE: A FORUM FOR ENVISIONING AND IMPLEMENTING A COMMUNITY-BASED APPROACH TO ARCHIVES

The Liberated Archive goes beyond good intentions to explore how archivists might partner with the public to repurpose the archive as a site of social transformation and radical inclusion. There are two goals for the Forum:
  • To provide community members with tools, techniques, and human connections that they can use to transform themselves as they need and desire, and
  • To provide archivists with tools, techniques, and human connections that you can use in your own community to transform the way in which the human record is documented.

From an inspiring opening plenary session… to 10 concurrent panel discussions… to an afternoon unconference that you’ll help to plan, you’ll explore a different kind of outreach that depends on collaboration, communication, and hands-on work to build trusted relationships and make friends and advocates. This is a hands-on way to grow your user base!
