Meet Our DanceUSA Archive Fellow

Join us in welcoming our DanceUSA Archive Fellow, Yvette Ramírez. Read below to learn more about her!

Yvette Ramírez is an arts administrator, oral-historian, and archivist from Queens, NY. She is inspired by the power of community-centered archives to further explore the complexities of information transmission and memory within Andean and other diasporic Latinx communities of Indigenous descent. Her archival practice is rooted in recordkeeping practices that embrace a hyperlocal and liberatory praxis, especially when working with identity-related collections. With nearly a decade of experience as a cultural producer, Yvette has worked alongside community-based and cultural organizations such as The Laundromat Project, PEN America, Make The Road New York, and the University of Michigan Library’s Digital Preservation Unit. She received her MSI in Digital Curation and Archives at the School of Information at The University of Michigan. 

At DanceATL, Yvette looks forward to working collaboratively with dance artists and the greater DanceATL community to co-build an organizational archive honoring the elders and pioneers of Atlanta Dance via oral history interviews and dance-legacy materials.
