PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


Indigenous, Black and People of Colour communities are
disproportionately underrepresented in all media. How do past images
unearthed from personal and institutional archives come to shape new
stories?


The Home Made Visible tour brings a personal lens to Indigenous and
visible minority archives through FREE exhibitions, screenings, and
workshops in libraries across Canada. Visit HomeMadeVisible.ca/Tour

Date: Mar 11th - Mar 31st, 2019

WORKSHOP


'Saving Ephemera: Storytelling Archives and the Role of Archiving'


Time: Saturday March 28th, 5 - 8pm


Facilitator: Mackenzie Whyte


Number of participants: 10 (Please register in advance)



WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION


Home Made Visible has commissioned Mackenzie Whyte, a self-taught
artist to host a workshop to explore the role of storytelling in
archival practices. In this multi-disciplinary workshop participants
will get to create archival memories by writing and painting logo/tattoo
to represent their own life experiences. Each segment of the workshop
will build on unpacking the power dynamic not always apparent in
storytelling and how this intersects with the narratives selected for
archives.



This is a hands-on workshop and every participant will go home with new archival objects.


ACCESSIBILITY


All Library locations are wheelchair accessible.
