Vancouver Independent Archives Week and the ASIS&T conference serendipitously overlap in Vancouver this year. Unfortunately, I have already missed a lot of the archives week programming, but there will be documentation and reflections posted on their excellent website over the coming months that I plan to dig in to.
While I am in Vancouver, I am honoured to be talking about artist-run centre archives and the PAVED Arts digital archive project at the ASIS&T conference on Monday, Nov. 12th 2018. I will be part of a panel about Everyday Documentation of Arts and Humanities Collections with Crystal Fulton from UC Dublin, Tim Gorichanaz from Drexel, Amy Jackson from U New Mexico, Kathryn La Barre and Carole Tilley from U Illinois Urbana-Champaign, John Walsh from Indiana University Bloomington, and Ann Marie Graf from Simmons University. It’s a large panel full of interesting projects and I think we are going to have a lot to talk about.
