It’s an all too imaginable near future, and the stories of women are deliberately being erased. The Archivists have begun to collect and preserve them before it is too late, before they are forgotten. Do you have a story you want remembered?

Think of the women in your life, the women who’ve inspired you… What if her story was at risk? What if you were the last person to remember her? To commit their stories to memory and contribute one of your own, visit The Archive.

ARTBARN is building an interactive installation featuring hundreds of stories of those who identify as women. Audience members will be invited to read or listen to those stories, or sit down at a typewriter to contribute a story of their own.
