Past Performance Part 1: Archiving art, performance and design
Tuesday 16th April 2013
Place: Africa Centre
Join Black Cultural Archives and the Africa Centre tomorrow an evening exploring the nature of heritage and collecting and the institutions, organisations and individuals that are custodians of African and Caribbean heritage.
Heritage institutions collect the records of our day-to-day lives as a lasting testimony of people, places and organisations. They mostly do this by acquiring and collecting records, archives, collections, documents, objects and heritage; but could it be that these terms often mean the same thing?
This event is the first of a two-part series of discussions and talks that will start to unravel the difference between archives, libraries, and museums; it has been shaped to provide practical advice and guidance on the material they hold, and to offer insights into the ways that you can access and make use of archives.
Past Performance Part 2 is on 28 May at 7pm.
