Get organized with CIR Vicky Blume. Learn how to create a basic archiving system for your artwork in a relaxed environment! Non-artists are welcome to bring other archival projects. 

As artists, creating and organizing an archive of what you've created in your lifetime can feel daunting. Some of your art may be missing or hard to track down, and wading through your files can lead to distracting tangents about other projects or administrative tasks. Get organized with CIR Vicky Blume in a relaxing music and coffee environment in Ives Squared. Participants will bring their own laptop, hard drive, or online storage and learn how to create a basic archiving system for their artwork—and then get to work! This coworking archive session will include scheduled breaks to stretch, share difficulties, and get refocused. Non-artists are welcome to bring other archival projects!

Vicky Blume is a New Haven artist and web designer. This is her eighth autumn in the city, after moving here to study psychology and art at Yale. Since then, Blume has lit up community engagement for Artspace and Creative Arts Workshop. This August, she joined Fractured Atlas, a non-profit tech company providing business tools for artists. In her artistic practice, Blume builds interactive websites, animations, and installations that offer calming and consensual alternatives to the Attention Economy.
