The Radical Archive of Preservation
The Radical Archive of Preservation, or T.R.A.P. is an Atlanta-based community of artists and students working to keep the body at the center. Founded in 2019, shady Radical imagined a space where scholarship and practice collided in powerful, meaningful, and implicating ways. Through archival research we create performances and rituals to activate the senses towards the recognition and appreciation of Black bodies.
At The Radical Archive of Preservation, our mission is to preserve community narratives, specifically, the stories of Black Women's through preservation consultation, collaboration, performance, and scholarship.
