Registration is Now Open for the 2022 Municipal Archives Interest Group (MAIG) Open House!

The MAIG Executive is pleased to announce that the MAIG Open House will be returning as an in-person event on October 14, 2022. This year, the Open House will be hosted by the Dufferin County Archives! Please join us and our gracious host Laura Camilleri as we explore the archives and its collections, and the exhibits, galleries, and grounds at the Museum of Dufferin. Attendees will also be provided with the opportunity to sit in on seminars by guest speakers Sahana Puvirajasingam (Museum of Dufferin and City of Toronto Museums & Heritage Services), who will be providing a video presentation about the “Collecting the Community” project; and a live virtual presentation by Alex Avdichuk and Gabrielle Major both with the City of Toronto Museums. “Collecting the Community” is an initiative by the Museum of Dufferin to engage with, collect, preserve, and interpret the past, present, and future history of historically marginalized communities in Dufferin County. Alex Avdichuk will be speaking on contemporary collecting policy and the sensitivity around collecting oral histories, and Gabrielle Major will be discussing collecting sensitive items. Read this year’s edition of the MAIGazine on the MAIG webpage for biographies on the speakers.

Lunch will be provided at the event. We hope you join us for a day of fun, learning, and connecting with our archival colleagues. Space is limited this year so please send your RSVP as soon as possible if you plan on attending in person. 

For those who cannot attend in person, there will be an opportunity to attend the live virtual session with Alex Avdichuk and Gabrielle Major and the MAIG meeting virtually through Zoom. Stay tuned to the AAO Listserv, the MAIG Listserv and webpage at https://aao-archivists.ca/maig for more details on how to take part in the virtual portions of the Open House.
