The POWRR Institute is a free, two-day Institute in conjunction with the 2022 Society of Florida Archivists (SFA) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida for up to 24 archival professionals working in the State of Florida and/or across the Southeastern United States. The Institute will be held on Monday, May 9th and Tuesday, May 10th, 2022 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.
The POWRR Institute is an intensive workshop-style experience of enormous potential benefit to archival practitioners in many contexts as it provides educational materials about, hands-on training with, and tangible deliverables for long-term digital preservation standards and best practices. Selections will be made on a variety of factors, including diversity and previous access to professional development opportunities.
The Institute has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.* Thank you to the NEH for their support! We are truly grateful to be among those receiving an NEH award in the 2021-2022 grant cycle.
With excitement and gratitude,
Project Director Rachel Walton (Digital Archivist, Rollins College)
Project Coordinator Mary Rubin (Archivist, University of Central Florida)
