Visit from Spektrum

We recently had a visit from Spektrum, a group for queer and trans youth of colour. The group is working on a really cool multimedia project called (Re) Telling Our Stories, which should be finished and ready to exhibit by the summer. The group had a chance to see some rough footage from Jaime Woo's new video, and we showed off the National Portrait Gallery, the library, the AV room and the Reading Room. As it happened, Michelle was processing a collection from the Toronto Women of Colour Collective, and she graciously let us check out a few of the scrapbooks.
I hope all the tour participants had fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they produce!

  1. It was a really fun group of people and I hope they will consider donating their work to the archives' collection and I hope they will submit an application to show the work as part of the upcoming exhibition series!
    Hint hint.
