International Archives Week #IAW2021

#IAW2021 | #EmpoweringArchives 

From Monday 7 to Friday 11 June 2021, we will celebrate the third International Archives Week #IAW2021 and this year’s theme will be #EmpoweringArchives.

We are inviting archival and records management professionals and organisations to join us in a virtual conversation by 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.
  • How networking and collaboration enable us to empower archives and the profession to help us achieve our goals and objectives for the profession and our institutions through the support of allied professions while helping other sectors and the general public understand what we do.
  • And 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 to the entire profession!

You could find below in the Downloads section a copy of the presentation of the launch of these two events.
