Tuesdays at the Archive

“Tuesdays at the Archive” is the Port of Tarragona Archive’s dissemination proposal begun in 2016. Once a quarter, it aims to bring subjects of interest to the attention of the public. Themes include the port, history and the sea, as well as the world of archives itself. The presentations can be in different formats: talks, guided tours, workshops, book presentations, etc. Here are some past Tuesdays at the Archive:

Talk: “Daily life in a lighthouse. Tarragona’s lighthouses and lighthouse keepers” by David Moré Aguirre, archivist and lighthouse historian.

Workshop: “How to organise and conserve the photographs in our family album” by Susanna Muriel, archivist specialising in photographic collections.

Guided tour: : “A walk round La Pedrera, the new town and the Port” with Ramon Aloguín, architect.

Workshop: “Document Conservation. Introduction and basic principles” by Anna Ferran, picture and archive material conservator-restorer.

Rephotography workshop: “Traces and destruction. A journey through the interior of the photographs of the Civil War in the Port of Tarragona” by Ricard Martínez, photographer.
