TAPPING INTO ARCHIVES AS CREATIVE VECTORS
Information on the activity
February 12, 2021 to February 26, 2021
Tapping into Archives as Creative Vectors will be an intergenerational gathering and reflection around archival practices and community initiatives meant to preserve and render accessible knowledge of black cultural presence and experiences in Montreal and beyond. This speaker series is curated by Josephine Denis and presented by SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art and will be hosted virtually on Zoom.
Throughout the four programs, we will be identifying incredibly important initiatives that the community and its allies should and can get behind through more substantial and long term gestures. In doing so, we will also discuss each initiative’s mission and needs in pursuing and seeing their projects through. This is a program that offers a moment for recentering, to remind ourselves of all the resources that are available to us, and that we can engage with. This works to dispel the myth of “starting from scratch,” illuminating the necessity of communal support, to create through inheritance and continuity, with a cultural sensibility that feels urgent and necessary to this particular moment.
