This event is in person only

This curatorial talk addresses the challenges of curating Black archives related to histories and Black lives in the Canadian context. Using the Sir George Williams student protest as a case study, it explores the limits of traditional archival practices and explores the possibilities that are enabled through critically engaged curating as decolonial practice. Grounded curating is positioned as a form of grassroots, memory- making and intervention that allows the re-visioning and re-narration of traditional archives as expanded space of community. This mode of engagement broadens the discussion on archives, protests and pedagogy and Black lives. Refreshments will be served.
