Scope and Content

These records were found in open box files and loose on the shelves of the library when the archive was first established in 2016.

Most of the materials relate to the organisation's activities between 1997-2003, and form the bulk of the records held by the archive from this period. 

The materials were initially arranged into an function hierarchy by the data of the exhibition/event. In 2020, they were also added to this series to represent the original order in which they were stored.
