This workshop will dive into the nuts and bolts of metadata and archival records as we talk about how artists can care for their own archives. We’ll talk about file management best practices and digital preservation concerns, and we’ll discuss intellectual property and copyright basics.

Led by Claudia M. Friedel, archivist at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University, and Kenvi Phillips, Curator for Race & Ethnicity, Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University. 

This event is part of Research Refracted, a collaborative series co-produced by MoCADA, Weeksville Heritage Center, Archival Alchemy®  & Brooklyn Collection 

Brooklyn Collection, Archival Alchemy®, MoCADA, and Weeksville Heritage Center are proud to partner on presenting a workshop series that examines the archive through the lens of the African diasporan artist community in Brooklyn. These programs are intended to demystify the archive as a space, and reveal opportunities for using special collections and associated bodies of knowledge for research, critical inquiry, and supporting an art practice.
