International Archives Week #IAW2023
Do you know why 9 June is International Archives Day? 9 June was chosen to commemorate the date ICA was created under the auspices of UNESCO in 1948. This was decided at the 2007 ICA Annual General Meeting, but it wasn’t until 2019 that the ICA expanded the event to an entire week.
This year, it will be our fifth International Archives Week (#IAW2023) and it will be special: 2023 marks our 75th anniversary. That is why from Monday 5 to Friday 9 June 2023, we will celebrate #75YearsICA of dedicated work to promote the importance of records and archives, and our profession.
Call for Volunteers: #75YearsICA Instagram Account Takeover
To celebrate our 75th anniversary, the ICA will launch its official Instagram account with an Instagram Takeover campaign! Would you like to participate and become one of our guest collaborators?
Any member of the ICA can participate (institutional or individual members). We are looking for ICA members willing to share their day-to-day professional activity on this social media platform. We want our followers to get to know different archivists and records management professionals from all seniorities, positions, languages and regions of the world.
