This is the 2nd Meet the Archivists event that the Business Archives Council of Scotland, the Scottish Council on Archives have organised and it aims to bring together artists and archivists to discuss and explore with students how business archive collections can be used for their research.
This year the focus is on creative and design use of business archives. So the event is aimed at college of art students, architectural and design students/academics but all are welcome.
We will have speakers that include artists and archivists discussing interesting and creative projects based on business archives like the Bartholomew Archive at NLS, the Stoddard-Templeton Archive at GUAS plus discussions by archivists from both Edinburgh College of Art and Glasgow School of Art and the Textile Archive at Heriot-Watt University on how their collections act as a source of creative inspiration.
You can find out more and register for the event via eventbrite.
This is a Working Archive event and you can find out more about the campaign here.
