#Messages to the Future, Personal Archiving in the 21st Century
WHEN: Saturday, 4/15 @ 5 pm
WHERE: CoHo Theatre, 2257 NW Raleigh St
In the 1940s Andrea Stolowitz’s great grandfather wrote a diary as a message to his great grandchildren.
This workshop considers the opportunities and challenges of communication with future generations in a time of endless documentation and personal archiving. Participants will reflect on what they might want their future kin to know, the challenges inherent in archiving in an era of planned obsolescence and the use of tags as archival tools. Participants will also have the chance to record messages to their future relatives living 20, 50 or 200 years from now.
