About Baltimore Living Archives

The SNF Parkway Theatre and the Enoch Pratt Library are delighted to launch “Baltimore Living Archives,” a collective place keeping project that builds community and civic engagement, centered around the sharing of stories through film and media. (Enoch Pratt’s Updated COVID Policy)

Baltimore Living Archives is an artist residency that invites Baltimoreans to craft and showcase media-based stories alongside two Baltimore artists with archiving practices, SHAN Wallace and Lawrence Burney. SHAN and Lawrence will develop their own work and work with the community, sharing skills and stories through a number of participatory programs. Members of the community will be invited to share their stories, explore and contextualize archives, and enjoy the findings of SHAN and Lawrence.


This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Anonymous Foundation. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.

Baltimore Living Archives was initially conceived by Ginevra Shay with Lawrence Burney and SHAN Wallace and is currently organized by Mia Smith.
