The 46th annual conference of the Association of Canadian Archivists asks us to consider the subject of "home" in its many manifestations and metaphors. Memory keepers occupy many homes at once – institutional, professional, personal – and as they have brought their work home onto kitchen tables, home offices and back yards over this pandemic year, the ACA 2021 conference calls us to question if the homes we have built meet the needs of our communities, if they are welcoming and accessible, and whether they have been built on solid foundations.
With over 100 speakers, facilitators and instructors from Canada, the USA, and Australia addressing topics such as collaborating with community members, description and access online, environmental sustainability, archival education, digital records, and critical archival studies, our vibrant and inclusive program will provide many opportunities for thoughtful learning and development.
We are excited to feature five plenary sessions:
