2nd Residency Program

Project STAND and the AUC Woodruff Library will host a one-week, in-person residency September 18–22, 2023 in Atlanta, GA. The residency will invite six individuals to serve in a cohort to create a digital educational resource as an extension of Project STAND’s Archiving Student Activism Toolkit.

The theme for our second residency is: Archiving Joy and Trauma: The Humanization of BIPOC Communities. The residency will focus on amplifying the importance of humanizing the existence of Black, Indigenous, People of Color that represent the global majority. This residency will include guest speakers whose work focuses on archiving the humanity of the BIPOC community including the joy, trauma, collective knowledge and experiences, intersectional existence, love, creativity, and everyday lives of members of the BIPOC community. These conversations will set the larger stage on the value of the full human experience of those engaged in student organizing.
