2024 Conference Annoucement

2024 Conference Announcement: Opening the Archives: Access, Engagement, Innovation

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming joint Australian Society of Archivists (ASA), Archives & Records Association of New Zealand Te Huinga Mahara (ARANZ), and Pacific Regional Branch International Council on Archives (PARBICA) conference Opening the Archives: Access, Engagement, Innovation.

Join us from Tuesday 22 October to Friday 25 October 2024 in Ōtautahi | Christchurch, Aotearoa | New Zealand as we delve into the theme of Opening the Archives — share your experiences and strategies for achieving this through access, engagement or other innovative avenues. 

The conference aims to bring together a wide range of views on what ‘opening’ the archives means; how this has been, or might be, achieved, and when it should not. It is also a space to explore the challenges and opportunities posed by new technologies, increased accessibility, and the acknowledgement of historical and cultural sensibilities.

Mark your calendars and be part of this enriching experience! Stay tuned for further details and registration information.
