Engaging Our Community Conference

On the weekend I spoke at the Engaging Our Community Conference held at Algoma University.  The panel I took part in, Beyond Paper: Participatory Past in the Community Archives,  focused on the concept of archives as places of engagement.  My presentation looked at the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre as an example of an archival institution that strives to involve community partners through outreach programming and participatory practices.

My portion of the presentation can be seen here.
