‘Living Archives, a celebration of design and digital culture’ was a lively gathering full of engaging activities and insightful discussions. The day was organized on June 20 at The New Institute by the Network Archives Design and Digital Culture (NADD).

The day began with a morning session on network archives, which set the tone for a series of enriching discussions. This was followed by three parallel roundtable discussions on archiving intangible heritage, offering diverse perspectives and in-depth explorations of the topic. Attendees then enjoyed lunch on deck, which provided a relaxing break and a chance to network.

The afternoon featured several workshops, including sessions led by the Collecting Otherwise team and Teresa Fernandez-Pello, a current resident at -1 at New Institute. These workshops offered practical insights and hands-on experiences in archiving practices.

A major highlight of the day was the opening of two new exhibitions commissioned by NADD. At 3:30 p.m., participants gathered in the foyer for an opening tour of the exhibition “How Do We Remember?” by curator Gyonne Zafira and artist Serana Angelista. This was followed by a panel discussion in the auditorium that delved deeper into the themes of the exhibition.

The event also marked the launch of a new episode of “Archives at Risk: Seeking Shelter,” featuring Carlien Macnack. Macnack shared more about her work during the roundtable discussion “Archiving Perspectives,”.

From 5-6 p.m., the launch of a special archival-oriented issue of The Guide took place in the auditorium, with performances by poets and writers. The day ended with celebratory drinks in the café and an evening program organized by Arianne and her team, featuring fashion designer Bobby Kolade.
