FIRST DISCUSSION EVENT: Touch Change: A co nversation between Syrus Marcus Ware and !Kona, NOVEMBER 2, 7 – 9 PM at grunt gallery

This series is the first part of a robust two-year program that will include presentations from international contexts to take place throughout 2019. All presentation documentation and accompanying critical responses by writers, artists, activists, and others will be published on archivesweek.ca as a research resource for wider and remote audiences.

Recollective: Vancouver Independent Archives Week broadens the context, understanding, and awareness of independent archives by exploring what is at stake when artists and arts organizations confront the tasks of arranging, describing, preserving, and providing access to material history. Focusing on the intersection of arts and activism, social justice movements, and community networks, Recollective features perspectives and approaches that employ grassroots strategies, hybrid models, collective organizing, DIY spaces, open source solutions, and counter-archives that facilitate ownership of community memory by and for the community.

We are excited to partner again with Western Front, VIVO Media Arts, 221A, and The Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery, and welcome new partners Artspeak and Rungh Magazine to our initiative.

For more information please email Emma or Dan at grunt gallery. (Emma@grunt.ca or dan@grunt.ca)
