Next week I will be attending the 2014 Archives Association of Ontario conference. This year's conference theme is "Party With Your Archives" with many of the presentations focusing on the use of archival collections in community events, commemoration projects, and the creation of collective memory.
On Friday May 30th I will be presenting "Marginalized Voices: Residential School Archives and Community Collaboration" as part of the Community Collaboration panel. My presentation is focused on the use of the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre and associated archives in commemoration events and the development of a community archive.
The complete conference program can be seen here.
