2024 ACA Annual Conference

Future-proofing: Centring Care Now for Archives Tomorrow

June 10 to 13, 2024 (Virtual)

Alberta is thrilled to announce it will be hosting the 2024 ACA Virtual Conference! Alberta is on the traditional lands of 45 First Nations who represent the Blackfoot, Cree, Chipewyan, Dene, Tsuut’ina, Saulteaux and Stoney Nakoda peoples and is the home to the Métis Nation of Alberta. These lands have a rich history that we are excited to share with the archival community in 2024. This Conference will be an opportunity for us to showcase over 50 archives from large urban centres to rural-based community archives. Over 100 archivists and archival workers from the province are looking forward to virtually welcoming attendees from around the world in new and creative ways! 

Future-proofing: Centring Care Now for Archives Tomorrow discusses designing systems and processes, and relationships that anticipate future needs of users, archivists, and society. What strategies and tools can archivists use to prepare for future challenges, known and unknown? What practices can archivists draw upon to support our resilience and that of our materials while we consider the still-developing challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Climate Crisis, and social and political conflict. Future-Proofing: Centring Care Now for Archives Tomorrow explores how we can proactively prepare our profession to ensure that archival organizations remain relevant to their communities, responsive to the evolving record-keeping landscape, and in accordance with professional ethics.
