Join the Young Curators as they lead a free workshop on how to design and build your own archive.
The Barbican Archive Residency is a weekend of free talks, workshops, films and pop-up installations showcasing material from the Barbican’s Archive as well as the collections from several guest London archives, exploring material relating to protest, experimental music, community video and much more.
Watch: Barbican, 1969 - from London Metropolitan Archives
This film from the London Met Archives, documents the development scheme for a residential area in the City following the destruction of the area after World War II and the start of building works in the Barbican.
As we start to build a Barbican Archive, we uncovered every edition of the Barbican Guide. Documenting the range of events we've hosted since we first opened in March 1982, browse the first year of our monthly guide.
