Unarchived Film Screening
February 8 | 6:30-8:30pm | Microsoft Teams
Join Surrey Archives staff for an online screening of "Unarchived,” a film documenting local knowledge keepers across BC who use family photos, newspaper articles and deeply rooted memories to fight for a more inclusive history. After the documentary, Surrey Archives staff will lead a discussion. They will also share how they are creating a more inclusive history locally with their own initiatives, namely the Amplifying Voices project.
