Apply Now: 'In the Clean Break Archive Workshop'

June 9, 2021

This is the first online workshop on the Clean Break archive: an opportunity to encounter and explore aspects of Clean Break's digital archive, to interrogate and to respond. Using a curated set of materials, we will explore the multiple stories an archive can tell and uncover what our own dialogues with it might be. Open to a limited number of a participants with application deadline of 5pm Friday 14th May 2021

The workshop is aimed at Masters and PhD students, professionals in the criminal justice system, and freelance artists and arts workers. 

No previous experience in archival research is necessary and we encourage applicants from a wide range of disciplines and practices to apply.  

If you have an interest in, among other areas: 

  • the criminal justice system,  
  • histories of feminist organising,  
  • community engagement,  
  • cultures of arts funding,  
  • how arts organisations interact with prisons, courts, police 
  • theatre practice 

...and you want to know more about how to engage with archival resources, this workshop is for you!

Details on how to apply

The workshop will run online from 10.30 am – 4.30 pm on 9 June, with breaks, and will include time to work with archival materials both individually, and in groups.
