The Art and Archives Project is part of Archives as Creative Practice by The National Archives for academic and research communities.

Art360 Foundation and The National Archives are collaboratively hosting a series of three connected workshops from Tuesday 16 – Thursday 18 November 2021, exploring how creative practitioners have historically interacted with institutional and artists’ archives, and how they might engage with such spaces in future.

The first workshop will explore different approaches to creating archives, how elements of artists’ practice can be archived and how artists’ archives differ from, or share affinities with, institution-based archives and other sites and structures.

Members of FTNA are very welcome to attend the first session on 16 November of the Art and Archives Project and the link to join is below:
