Nomadic Archivists Project

Niels Bekkema's stories

The Nomadic Archivists Project (NAP) is an initiative that partners with organizations, institutions, and individuals to establish, preserve, and enhance collections that explore the global Black experience.

Our central objective is to archive local histories from a grassroots perspective. NAP does not subscribe to the philosophy that curation and archiving should stem from the mission of traditional repositories. We believe in flexibility and the freedom to choose the path to archiving one’s creative endeavors, political advocacy, family, and history. NAP believes in equitable partnerships that arise from the needs of the community. We are dedicated to developing archival literacy in audiences unfamiliar with the process of identifying, collecting, and preserving cultural heritage.
