LIBERATED ARCHIVE FORUM JULY 29 IN PORTLAND


The Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting is taking place in Portland from July 23-29 and it just happens that the last day is FREE and all are invited to attend!



The Liberated Archive Forum is scheduled from 8:45am-5:00pm at the Oregon Convention Center on Saturday, July 29. Help spread the word, as the organizers want to see not only you there but also welcome members of the communities that you serve.



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.



The morning will kick off with a keynote address featuring a wealth of wisdom from the renowned educator, writer, scholar, and spoken word artist Walidah Imarisha of Stanford University. You can then choose to attend one of ten concurrent panel discussions ranging from "#ArchivesForBlackLives" to "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Show Me Documents That Include Us All."



As part of an afternoon "unconference," there will be a chance to explore a different kind of outreach that depends on collaboration, communication, and hands-on work to build trusted relationships and make friends and advocates.
