THIS SUNDAY! Kaydka Reerka / Family Archives Workshop at the Soomal House of Art
Sunday, September 3, 2 – 5 PM

This workshop led by SITAAD (Leyla Degan and Naima Hassan) explores Somali family archives. It provides an opportunity to learn about archiving and will be introduced by Kaamil A. Haider, co-director and archivist at Soomaal House.

Materials from the Soomaal House Archive will prompt us to consider the conservation of Somali family photographs. In the workshop, alternative strategies of archiving connected to the centrality of Somali oral traditions will also be explored. Somali music cassettes will feature in the workshop; therefore, participants are invited to bring family cassettes.

Participants are recommended to bring 1–5 photographs to the scanning session to take advantage of this opportunity. The doors open at 2 PM and programming at 2:30.

The workshop will include light refreshments.
