ARA Together Online Community Calls

As part of the ARA Together Online Community, we run a series of Online Community calls which provide an opportunity to explore some of the topical issues affecting the sector during the pandemic. 

We are now planning our ARA Together Online Community Call schedule for the second half of the year and would really value your suggestions for topics you’d like to see us cover over the coming months. So far this year we’ve covered topics from freelancing in archives and women in record-keeping to records at risk and sustainable record-keeping – to name just a few.

If you’re passionate about a particular topic that affects professionals in our sector, let us know. We would be delighted to hear from you.

Please send your suggestions for future call topics to Maria Castrillo at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

ARA Together Online Community

The ARA Together’s Online Community is a free online platform where you can chat with each other and share openly via text, voice chat and video. We will be there each day to answer your questions and will host regular calls where we can all speak to each other about the latest challenges and developments. In this way we can support and connect with each other regularly and learn from one another as a community, sharing experiences, advice and examples of best practice.

Registration couldn’t be simpler, and you can start engaging in the conversations as soon as you’ve signed up. Click on this link to sign up to Discord and to access the ARA Together server. Once you have created an account and signed in, you can access the ARA Together server from the left hand menu bar (shown with an ARA icon). In the ARA Together server you will see different channels showing on the left with #Titles. Please review the #server-rules and then jump into the #welcome channel to introduce yourself. If you need any support with Discord simply pop your questions in the #server-support channel.
