Event Details

The South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) is a non-profit organization based in Chicago with a mission to document, preserve and provide worldwide access to South Asian American history through a digital archive, available online at http://www.saadigitalarchive.org  The archive currently includes over 900 unique items that help to uncover previously hidden narratives from the South Asian American community and its history.

With funding from the Kiran Bavikatte Foundation, SAADA is undertaking a project to document South Asian American artists, arts organizations and arts events in Illinois. Over the course of this one-year project, SAADA will add nearly 300 individual digitized items documenting the groundbreaking and prolific careers of South Asian American artists. We hope to eventually expand the project to also include archival materials from South Asian American artists from around the country.



The discussion at the SAADA Community Forum on April 26 will form the basis for this project. We will seek input from forum participants, such as yourself, on the following topics:

• What do you want future generations to know about South Asian American artists of today?
• What kinds of archival materials would help to document your creative process?
• What more would you like to know about the history of South Asian Americans in the arts?
• Which artists, arts organizations and arts events in Illinois should be included in the archive?

This event is being hosted and co-sponsored by the Chicago Office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago).
