Workshop description: 

This 1-day workshop (split over 2 online Zoom sessions) will be of interest to Tribal/First Nations Government administrators, archivists, Indigenous community members or cultural memory keepers, students, or anyone working in the field of archival or heritage practice.

“Archives 101: Archival Practice for Indigenous Organizations” will provide participants with an introduction to archival theory and best practices that they will be able to use on a daily basis. Workshop participants will learn how to create a solid foundation for developing their archives program and learn about the appraisal and practical management of archival records and cultural knowledge. They will learn how to process and provide access to records created on different media formats (textual records, audio-visual, sound recordings and electronic records). Workshop discussion will also include best practices for disaster planning and archival resources and funding opportunities available for Indigenous organizations. Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions in order to fully complete the workshop training.

The workshop will be delivered by Lisa Glandt, Education and Advisory Services Coordinator for the AABC. Lisa has been delivering this workshop both in-person and online throughout British Columbia since 2019.

Note: This workshop will be delivered using Zoom webinar software. Zoom is free to download and links will be provided to participants before the workshop starts. Participants will need access to a computer with sound/speakers to view and follow along with the PowerPoint training slides.
