Archive Workshops


In the process of establishing this archive it became very apparent many people and many organisations were missing from the archives.


We thought it would be helpful to share what we had learnt. We created three Learning Resource documents which are free to download and share. We organised workshops to share of what we had learned so as to equip and encourage others to establish their own archives.

 

We organised the workshop titled 'Are You Missing From The Archives?' The workshop was held at the Bishopsgate Institute on the 20th April 2017. We also shared our insights at a workshop at the Netherlands Architecture Institute (now called The New Institute). We welcome the opportunity to speak with anyone thinking of setting up an archive and welcome the opportunity to contribute to workshops and discussions on archives.


The workshops were funded by the United Kingdom's Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England. They were supported by the Bishopsgate Institute and This Is Not A Gateway.
