The Finding Aid: Black Women Archivists
The Finding Aid: Black Women at the Intersection of Art and Archiving is an interactive, multi-media dialogue that explores the intersection of experimental art practices and community-based archiving.
This event is based on the idea of a finding aid. A finding aid is a document used in archives for accessibility and discovery. We will transform a finding aid from an archival inventory/guide into an artistic archival experience. Our goal for this event is for people to leave knowing what an archive and archivist is or can be, and feeling empowered to begin their own archival/artistic practice and engage with existing archives.
