IFA – Inclusivity For Archives

IFA – Inclusivity For Archives      för svenska                                                    

The community archives of south-west Götaland has a new project reaching out to immigrant and ethnic minority groups and associations of all kinds, to support and encourage the documentation of their activities and preserve them for posterity.

We welcome associations from within our area of operations (the municipalities of Ale, Härryda, Kungälv, Mölndal, Partille and Öckerö) to contact our project manager Arif Naqvi. He is happy to arrange an informal discussion about how your organisation currently documents its history in order to develop appropriate ways to archive them for the future.

There is no cost attached to taking part in this project and all kinds of organisations are welcome: cultural, sporting, educational, religious, workplace, political, social, large or small, active, dormant or closed down.

The organisation does not even have to be formally constituted and may be online, as long as it has a democratic form and goals, is based in our area of operations, and has someone who can communicate in either Swedish or English at our meetings.

Want to know more? You can download an information sheet in English and in Swedish and can share it with anyone with connections to relevant groups. Arif can be reached via email at arif.naqvi(a)molndal.se and he can arrange a meeting (whether physical, online or by phone) to answer any further questions you may have.
