International Archives Week #IAW2022

From Monday 6 to Friday 10 June 2022, we will celebrate the fourth International Archives Week #IAW2022 and this year’s theme will be #ArchivesAreYou.   

This theme was first launched as part of the third ICA’s social media campaign leading up to #IAW2022, with the goal of inviting archival and records management professionals and organizations to join us in a virtual conversation about what it means to be an archivist and what archival records truly reflect: stories

During #IAW2022, this virtual conversation will be expanded with a full programme of webinars and an interactive map to show the world why and how #ArchivesAreYou. Have you already included the events that you have planned to celebrate #IAW2022 in our interactive map? Are you interested in attending the webinars prepared with our ICA members? 

Be part of #IAW2022 and let’s demonstrate how and why #ArchivesAreYou!    

How to be part of #IAW2022 and #ArchivesAreYou?
