Global #Cyberfeminist #Archiving

An exciting next step from the global Women’s March comes in the form of the “Women’s March on Washington Archives Project”; a global participatory project led by archivists from the SAA Women Archivists Section (WArS) to evidence and capture the events of 21 Jan 2017. The aim is to build a global digital resource sharing and preserving materials. This project is aligned with [DWAN]’s cyberfeminist archiving activity. As such, we’ll be supporting the project and collaborating with other UK archivists/ archives/ heritage orgs to support the project – digitizing the wonderful placards and collecting imagery (with consent) and oral testimony from those who marched!! This will be MASSIVE in terms of a process of global feminist archiving – probably the largest ever undertaken … and hugely exciting!!! Watch this space, and in the meantime follow the project here: @WMWArchivesProj #Solidarity
