Date and Time
Event DescriptionWednesday, May 12th at 7:00 pm via Zoom
Heather Home & Janice McAlpine will speak on “Community Archiving: the Kingston LGBTQ Archives as Collaborative Model.”
Community archiving is a documentation strategy aimed at working with a community to create archives, the objective being to have stories of the past told by those intimately involved in the activities, and resulting outcomes, of that lived experience. It is not about establishing a history; it is about revealing a history. The presenters will look at this type of community work in the ground-breaking creation of the Kingston LGBTQ collection at the Queen’s University Archives.
Heather Home is an archivist at Queen’s University specializing in cultural and social records; Janice McAlpine is a Kingston community member.
