Do you have a creative practice? Do you collect objects, art or documents? Are you interested in learning about archival practices and processes? If so, this workshop is for you.
Join archivists from the Special Collections and Galleries Team, and get practical advice on how to store, arrange and describe your records.
We will take you through the basic concepts of archiving and how you can apply this to the records you produce. The session will cover the preservation of records in both analogue and digital formats. You will look at some of the archive challenges these different formats present. It will also highlight approaches you might consider when archiving the records of other artists.
This workshop is for University of Leeds students and early career professionals.
