The DPC is pleased to announce two Career Development Fund grants for members to attend the 2021 Australian Society of Archivists Archives Amplified Conference, taking place 14 - 17 September. These grants, detailed below, are open to all DPC members.

 

About the Conference

This year’s Australian Society of Archivists (ASA) annual national conference will be held on 14 – 17 September 2021 and will be a hybrid event offering in-person and virtual attendance options.

Archives Amplified: Connect, Challenge, Reimagine will explore the ever-expanding and changing boundaries of archives and the archival profession, and will provide a platform for finding creative solutions to shared challenges. A broad range of topics will be explored, focused on the central theme of ‘amplify’, and a Draft Program is available here.

The onsite conference events will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane, on the traditional land of the Turrbal and Yuggera people. The virtual elements of the conference will be delivered through the Delegate Connect platform. For more information, please visit the ASA 2021 Archives Amplified conference page here.
