Keeping Our Stories Alive: Webinar with Raegan Swanson, Executive Director, The ArQuives

Thursday, May 28, 2:00PM (EST)

Join us to hear from Raegan Swanson, Executive Director, The ArQuives, about the work The ArQuives is doing and what community archives can do to collect and preserve the historical record of LGBTQ2+ communities. Presented in partnership with Durham Region Area Archives Group, this Webinar compliments the online exhibition Come Out, Come Out, as part of the ongoing effort to address the lack of diverse representation in the Thomas Bouckley Collection, and in historical accounts of Oshawa and Durham Region as a whole.

Founded in 1973, The ArQuives documents the lives of LGBTQ2+ communities in Canada. The ArQuives has grown into one of the largest LGBTQ2+ collections in the world, with a collection that includes library material, archival records, artifacts, art, and reference materials.

This Webinar will be held over Zoom and is open to the public. No registration is required, just join the link below on Thursday, May 28 at 2:00PM (EST)
