Program Manager for “Your Story is Ours: Memory & Belonging in LA”
The Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) and the Library Foundation of Los Angeles (LFLA) invite applicants to apply for a Project Manager to help research, plan, and implement a personal and community archiving project, “Your Story is Ours: Memory & Belonging in LA.” The five-year grant-funded project, supported by the Mellon Foundation, will cultivate personal archiving in the East Valley, Northeast LA, and South LA through DIY and Mobile Memory Lab activities in neighborhood libraries and community events. DIY Memory Lab kits will empower community members to learn and conduct personal archiving of their materials, including photos, negatives, documents, and oral histories. Mobile Memory Labs, used at outreach events, are staff-mediated kits that enable patrons to digitize their objects and record oral histories. In addition to planning and supervising these activities, the Project Manager will help LAPL build a participatory archiving model among LA’s Black, LGBTQ+ Chicanx, and Skid Row/Homeless communities.
