As the first collaborative of its kind, we work to raise awareness and organize widespread collective effort at the intersections of archives, representation, and technology.

  • We advocate for culturally-responsible archival practices that address the significant erasures in visual, material, and historical representation disproportionately affecting communities of color.

  • We bring together practitioners, institutions, professionals, and scholars from a broad range of intellectual and technical backgrounds to develop better strategies for retaining visual and cultural integrity of communities of color in historical archives.

  • We provide a model for archives, libraries, museums, and cultural heritage centers around the world about the aesthetic, cultural, and social implications of visual representations found in the archive.
