Preserving Pico
A Workshop on the Preservation of Photographs
@ The Pico Branch Library in Virginia Avenue Park
Saturday, November 18, 2017
2 – 5 PM
Space is limited: RSVP NOW

The Los Angeles Archivists Collective, in collaboration with the 18th Street Arts Center, presents a workshop on how to preserve physical photographic collections. Topics covered will include best practices for handling, caring for and storing your photographs. Members of the Pico Neighborhood and wider Santa Monica area are specially invited to bring a few photographs to be digitized and contributed to the Culture Mapping 90404 Project.

Facilitated by 18th Street Arts Center, Culture Mapping 90404 is a community produced map highlighting the history and cultural assets of the Pico neighborhood. Cultural assets are people, places, events and organizations, both past and present, that serve as cultural anchors within this community. In collaboration with the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, we have trained community volunteers to document cultural resources, memories, and histories in the Pico neighborhood of Santa Monica. Learn more and get involved by accessing the map here: http://culturemapping90404.org/
