Conversations & Visual Explorations

What can the BIPOC community learn from researching archival documents made by and for BIPOC communities? How can archival research provide a key to inform the current and future anti-racists efforts?

Documents of Resistance invites BIPOC artists, writers, and activists who look to BIPOC archives to inform their work, present-day community organizing, and activism, for conversation and visual explorations. These artists/activists draw from a wide range of BIPOC activist histories: from the struggle for jobs, education, and housing—to prison abolition, land rights, and health care. We hope that the artists and attendees can share their archival inspiration and experiences for the next generation of BIPOC artists and activists as starting points from which to advance the anti-racist struggle.
