Archives Awareness Week

Archives Week is our annual celebration to draw public attention to the importance of the province's nearly 200 archival institutions. British Columbia's annual Archives Week takes place the third week in November.

Each year, institutions are encouraged to think of ways that they can celebrate Archives Week in your community. Your activity does not have to be related to the year's chosen theme; the goal is to raise public awareness of the importance of archival records. Plan an event to showcase your archives and raise public awareness. Ideas include: creating an exhibit, organizing an open house, giving tours, offering special workshops or seminars, or writing an article for the local newspaper. If you would like to help with planning Archives Week please contact info@aabc.ca.

2020 Archives Awareness Week

The 2020 Archives Awareness Week was held November 16-20, 2020 with a week of activities and events focused on the theme of "Archival Activism".
