A collection of voices gathered from the world of the lesser represented & marginalized populations in media or media preservation. These voices belong to women, queer folx, the trans community and people of color. These are indigenous voices and the voices of the differently abled. These voices are those that need to be heard because they haven’t been. Archivist’s Alley is a safe & lively conversational space designed for discussions on how to preserve our work and identities in today's professional landscapes. Who we are, what we do, and what and how we love!
