Preserving our Heritage: A Weekend of Community Archiving at CENTRO
Join CENTRO for a series exploring the significance of preserving and documenting the historical memory of diasporic and minority communities. As part of our 50th Anniversary, we aim to make our archival experience and knowledge accessible to empower our community and ensure our legacies are woven into the tapestry of global heritage.
Collective memory shapes identities, fosters understanding, and forges inclusivity. Through engaging discussions and interactive sessions, we will explore why it is crucial to capture and share the stories of communities that have often been overlooked.
Through this symposium, we will:
- Discuss best archival practices for individual and collective community archives
- Learn about copyright laws and restrictions
- Engage in personal digitization workshops
- Explore a comprehensive outline of our shared history
Join us for 3 days with The Schomburg, Lesbian Herstory, The Whitney, and other partners at the CENTRO Library & Archives located in El Barrio, in person and Virtual!
