This 3-hour workshop will introduce the benefits of preserving historical records that show how artists perceive, communicate and invent projects. Participants will learn basic archival principles, including setting priorities for collection management as well as basic records classification. We will discuss paper and electronic documentation. The workshop will help those thinking about artist's estates and those needing to create valuable artist-run centre histories. There will be a mixture of listening and hands-on approaches to this information. Artists are welcome, as are administrators, and all in-between and beyond who are interested in archives.
This workshop requires registration. To participate in Archives for Artists, please call 250 383 8833 or email [email protected]
