#IAW2021 and #EmpoweringArchives Launch

From Monday 7 to Friday 11 June 2021, we will celebrate the third International Archives Week #IAW2021 and this year’s theme, #EmpoweringArchives. We are inviting archival and records management professionals and organizations to join us in a virtual conversation on the topic of #EmpoweringArchives. 

ICA will launch #EmpoweringArchives on March 31, 2021. The launch is an opportunity to learn about ICA’s second social media campaign and #IAW2021 which is built around the topic of #EmpoweringArchives and how we will be using these hashtags (#EmpoweringArchives and #IAW2021) to discuss how archives empower accountability and transparency, through access to information for holding governments to account and ensuring that citizens can protect their rights. Or how networking and collaboration enable us to empower archives and the profession to help us achieve our goals and objectives for the professions and our institutions through the support of allied professions while helping other sectors and the general public understand what we do. And finally, we would like to discuss how to challenge current archival theory and practice to make it more diverse and inclusive of different voices along with different histories. 

Be part of this conversation on #EmpoweringArchives and celebration of the #IAW2021. Your voices are important to us and the entire profession.
