The Association of Canadian Archivists is pleased to open registrations for our 46th annual conference, Home Improvement: Building Archives Through Change. The conference will take place online via the Whova platform from June 7-11, 2021.
With over 100 speakers, facilitators and instructors from Canada, the USA, and Australia addressing topics such as collaborative community archives, sustainability, archival education, digital records, and online description and access, our vibrant and inclusive program will provide many opportunities for thoughtful learning and development. We are excited to feature plenary panels addressing the crucial topics of human rights documentation projects and Black history and memory, and a closing keynote by internationally-lauded author and archivist Verne Harris.
Finally, a series of delightful social events and activities including a screening of archival films, a trivia night, and some special surprises to come will help keep attendees connected and energized!
