Conversation on Local History: New York City (Session 1)

We invite the historical records community to engage in conversation with DHPSNY staff in order to identify under-documented topics and peoples in New York State history, and to share opinions on current collecting activities within the state. Your participation will help direct future NY State Archives Documentary Heritage Program activities and ensure a more equitable historical record. In this meeting, we will explore the meanings of “local history,” who is included in or missing from that history, and what resources are needed to support future local and statewide collecting activities. This Conversation is open to everyone in New York State.. **Registration is suggested, but not required to attend.** Learn more and register ➝ **Note this is the first of 2 sessions in this location: All attendees are invited to join METRO staff for a tour of the studio and a brief update on current projects from 12:00 - 12:30 PM, regardless of the session you attend.**
