Queer community-based archives serve a pivotal role in building and preserving queer communities all around the globe. Despite this fact, archivists in these archives often work in extremely challenging and under-resourced conditions, without the chance to share experience and dilemmas with others who do similar work.
The Haifa Queer History Project invites archivists, scholars, volunteers, contributors, and community organizers, who work in or with a queer community-based archive, to meet, discuss, exchange ideas and learn from each other in our Queer Community-based Archives' Workshop.
The workshop will take place in Haifa, Israel/Palestine, on Wednesday-Friday 20-22.5.2020.
We invite proposals for workshops around the challenges, skills, working methods and experiences of queer community-based archives. Please send an abstract of the proposed workshop (no longer than 300 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, January 26th 2020.
We want to stress that participation in the workshop does not require such a submission! The event is open to all, and we would like to encourage you to take part in it in any way that suits you.
Registration to the workshop is required from all participants!
Please register via this link before March 22nd 2020: https://forms.gle/LqNkdKWrkoSRZmzu5
In addition to the workshops offered by the participants, the event will also include a walking tour and a visit to an exhibition of Haifa's queer history, which is a collaboration of our project and the Haifa City Museum.
The event is organized by the Haifa Queer History Project, a grassroots research and documentation project of the histories of queer existence and resistance in the city of Haifa.
PLEASE SHARE to whoever might be interested, and see you in May!
