Archive Collective provides opportunities for the community to engage with photography by hosting group critiques, gallery visits, artist talks, local and traveling exhibitions, studio visits, and meet-ups. Archive’s goal is to celebrate and contribute to the democracy, versatility, and ever evolving critical discourse of photography and lens-based media, while simultaneously securing its place within a broader Kansas City arts community.

In 2017, Archive launched a publishing platform and residency program to connect photographers to resources, audiences and opportunities in Kansas City.
