Our Initiatives

At ACE, the concept of return is embedded in all our initiatives:

  • Repatriation, involving advance fieldwork; finding partners & local community leaders/members to co-implement repatriation, curation, circulation and use of materials.

  • Dissemination via our Online Archive, Global Jukebox, YouTube Archive, publications, and repatriation programming.

  • Endangered Cultures Initiative: New documentation created by culture members, and owned, curated, managed by the community.

  • Mentoring: We support and facilitate the work and formation of emerging leaders and those who will influence and educate others. We encourage them to make use of our materials, finish projects, and to create new ones.
