Archives in the Future Workshop, British Library, London

Archives in the Future Workshop, Monday, February 29, British Library, London

Archives care for the past, but what is their role in caring for the future?

The ‘Archives into the Future’ seminar series provides a forum for creative debate about the issues facing archives today, and seeks to explore innovative approaches towards archives in the future.

This is the second annual day conference co-organised by ‘Antislavery Usable Past’ and ‘Performing the Jewish Archive’.  This workshop, led by Antislavery Usable Past project team, in collaboration with the British Library, will focus on the relationships between archives and the Third Sector.  Building upon the idea of a ‘usable’ past, the workshop will offer a forum for an exchange of ideas between archivists, curators, academics, NGOs, charities and human rights organisations on the value of archives in the Third Sector and how heritage resources can be utilised in modern day campaigning.
