Diary of Business Archive Events

2019 BAC Conference

‘No Archive is an Island. Connection and collaboration in business archives.’

Collaborative working is at the heart of modern archives. Just as the records in our care cross borders and boundaries, so archive services are increasingly working across disciplines and institutions. Doing so allows us to realise the value of our collections to multiple audiences, resolve common problems and capture different voices.

‘No Archive is an Island’ will consider the possibilities and opportunities offered through connections and collaborations, from working with internal colleagues to building relationships on the regional and national stage. Speakers will consider the challenges posed by such models of working, sharing observations, examples and lessons learnt through their own participatory approaches to archival practice.

The conference will be held on 20 November 2019 at RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London.

Booking is now open via eventbrite – use this link to access the site.
