No White Gloves and Networking Event After the Utah Fall Caucus, October 25

October 10, 2013

No White Gloves is a new group created to help bridge the gaps—geographic and social—between cultural heritage professionals in Utah and the Intermountain West. As curators, archivists, and conservators in small-population, big-area states, we often don’t have enough opportunities to get to know our colleagues, or to bounce ideas off each other, so let’s start connecting across institutions, towns, and backgrounds! Created by Sundance Institute archivists Tanya DeAngelis and Andrew Rabkin, join the group at!/nowhitegloves.

Our first live event will be a mixer at Communal Restaurant in Provo after the CIMA Fall Caucus on October 25. The festivities start at 6 pm that evening and you can RSVP to So lose the white cotton gloves for a while, kick back, and relax with us!
