Event Details

Archives and archivists, sign up to let us know you will be participating in the #explorearchives social media activity.

Archives are amazing. Without them we could not study our personal histories or the histories of our communities or nations. There would be no historically rich novels and films. We would know nothing about the lives of our predecessors.

We want to celebrate all our wonderful archives and the invaluable work that goes into collecting, keeping and sharing the world’s memory.


As part of the Explore Your Archive week we're asking the organisations and people who look after archive collections to take to Twitter to share their work, their experiences and stories and the gems from their collections.


Each day we will have a different hashtag. You can join in for one day, or for all five days. 


Monday 16 November 2015

A celebration of the richness and variety within archives - why they are relevant to our world today, what they can tell us and how they can entertain us. Share stories, gems and facts about your collection.

Tuesday 17 November 2015
#ArchiveSelfie and #ArchivesLive

Create and share your archive self-portraits and any historic 'selfies' you find in archive collections. Wear your archi’ve explored badges with pride and tweet us your pictures! Use video and broadcast channels to film behind the scenes, interviews and talking heads with visitors and colleagues.


Wednesday 18 November 2015

A celebration of what archives have achieved in the last year. Also the chance to share an insider's perspective of what happens in an archive, in a typical (or not so typical), day, month or year!


Thursday 19 November 2015

An opportunity to showcase ways in which archive collections inspire creativity, to explore the history of music and art held within archive collections and to share the beautiful and maybe unusual pieces within your collection


Friday 20 November 2015

Share animal stories and pictures of animals you find in archive collections
