Description

Thrilled to be part of the Liberated Archive Forum and explore how archivists might partner with the public to repurpose the archive as a site of social transformation and radical inclusion.

Join us for this session where Vanport Mosaic Co-director Story Midwife Laura Lo Forti, VM Education Programming Director Greta Smith, and PSU University Archivist and Head of Special Collections Cristine Paschild will talk about this exciting collaboration in creating a community-centered living archive for the Vanport Mosaic oral histories and all our educational resources for anyone interested in this transformative history.

Do you have projects, stories, artifacts, articles... or just ideas for a truly accessible and discoverable portal about Vanport? Come and share with us! (or get in touch at info@vanportmosaic.org)


Liberated Archive Forum -

goes beyond good intentions to explore how archivists might partner with the public to repurpose the archive as a site of social transformation and radical inclusion.

Vanport Mosaic -

is a collective of artists, storytellers, educators and media makers seeking to engage the public in remembering the silenced histories of the Pacific Northwest in order to better understand our present.
