TCART October forum on COVID-19 and Social Justice

Hello TCART members,

We will be hosting another forum over Zoom on Thursday, October 8th from 2-3 pm (RSVP here). At the last forum, some of you expressed an interest in hearing about how archivists can responsibly document, and respond to, the pandemic and protests against racism and police brutality. For this next forum, we have arranged for short presentations from two managers of collections that focus on both those topics.

We will hear from Dr. Heather Shirey from St. Thomas who is publishing online examples of urban street art through the George Floyd & Anti-Racist Street Art collection and the COVID-19 Street Art collection. We will also get to talk with Dr. Susannah Ottaway of Carleton College who manages similar projects on the Black Lives Matter movement and COVID-19.

After Shirey and Ottaway’s presentations, we will have a chance to ask them about these projects. We really hope you can attend, it will be a great opportunity to learn about some important and fascinating work.

Please complete the following RSVP Google Form for the Zoom meeting. Zoom invitations will only be sent to those who complete the form. Thank you!
