4 March 2021, online
ARA South East is hosting on 4 March a workshop with colleagues from across the archives sector on collecting around national events and causes in 2020.
The webinar will focus on ‘Collecting a Nation: 2020, a year to remember’. This will focus on approaches to collecting material on national events and causes, such as the coronavirus, Black Lives Matter, and climate change.
The speakers will include Bristol Museums talking about their climate change collection campaign, Cambridge University Library and their COVID-19 collecting appeal, and the Bishopsgate Institute discussing their Angela Christofilou Archive, which contains digital photography of contemporary protests and demonstrations in the UK.
The webinar will run on Microsoft Teams from 13:30 to 15:30 GMT, including the ARA South East AGM towards the end of the event.
