Workshop on archival awareness
NISE organises, together with UNPO, a workshop on archival awareness on Monday 31 March 2014 at the ADVN archives and research centre in Antwerp (Belgium).
UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation) is an international organisation established in 1991 at the Peace Palace in The Hague (The Netherlands). Now representing over 150 million people, it acts as conduit for indigenous peoples, minorities and occupied or unrecognised territories, to the United Nations, the European Parliament and other international forums. UNPO recently became a NISE Partner.
Using a practical approach, whereby participants are encouraged to actively share their own experiences, the workshop will explore how archives can be used to share knowledge and best practices on issues pertinent to the preservation of social, cultural, political and economic rights. Furthermore, participants will gain the basic knowledge and skills necessary for archival management. The workshop will be lead by a team of experts in the field of archival management, including specialists on minority group/indigenous archives. Also, NISE Network members Sami Arkiiva and ADVN will present their institutes.
See here for the program.
The workshop is designed for the members of UNPO. However, the workshop can also be attended by members of the public.
Entrance is free, but please register before March 10 with Elly Broes: firstname.lastname@example.org.
