2017 Chicago Open Archives Spotlight Event Workshop

Date: Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Location: DePaul University, John T. Richardson Library, 2350 N. Kenmore Avenue, Room 417

Description: The Chicago Open Archives Spotlight Event Workshop is designed for Chicago Area Archivists members and allies who are interested in hosting an archives month event that follows the 2017 theme. The 2017 theme, Hidden Stories, will give visitors an opportunity to uncover a story from your collections using specific “clues” (documents, artifacts, images, maps) that create a narrative. During the workshop members of the COA Working Group will demonstrate a 'building a narrative' activity, brainstorm hidden story ideas with you, and discuss our vision for encouraging visitors to attend multiple COA events. 

Parking information: There are two visitor parking areas: Sheffield Parking Garage (2331 N. Sheffield) or Clifton Parking Deck (2330 N. Clifton). There is a parking validation machine in the Richardson Library and the DePaul discount rate is $7.25 after 4pm. Street parking around the library may also be available.

Registration limit: 15
