What’s UP at the Archives – January 26, 2023

The year 2023 is already shaping up to be an exciting one at the Community Archives! Staff and volunteers have been back for several weeks working on a range of projects to advance the acquisition, preservation and accessibility of Mission’s documentary heritage. Here are some of the initiatives planned for 2023:

• New virtual 2023 Heritage Week exhibit: PICTURE THIS! featuring photographs of contemporary photographer Noel Hall (1930-2017) who donated 30,000 images to the Community Archives in April 2000.

• New video tutorials to be created  in partnership with students from the Library and Information Technology Program at University of British Columbia

• CITIZEN ARCHIVIST – the rebranding and expansion of the Archives Volunteer Program to include opportunities for virtual volunteering

• New video productions to be added to the Community Archives series:  Then & Now and Mission Moments.

• 26th Annual Celebration of Women featuring extraordinary individuals whose life stories and personal archives have been added to the Community Archives holdings.

• During October our BLAST FROM THE PAST series on social media will feature posts to celebrate the 65th anniversary of West Heights Elementary School.
