The Local Archive and the Semiquincentennial: A Forum

Mar 10, 2023 at - | Virtual or in person: McNeil Center for Early American Studies, 3355 Woodland Walk, Philadelphia, PA

Unite or Die

With the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence just three years away, many archives and museums are turning their attention to planning for the United States’ semiquincentennial. Philadelphia institutions are, unsurprisingly, at the forefront of this activity. This one-day forum is an opportunity for area repositories and historic institutions to learn about each other’s plans and establish connections as the planning continues.

The event will include presentations from organizers of The Revolutionary City: A Portal to the Nation’s Founding and from the DelCo250 consortium. In addition, there will be ample opportunity for informal networking and discussion and a lightning round in which participants can pitch ideas for collaboration.
