Our Initiatives

At ACE, the concept of return is embedded in all our initiatives.


From advance fieldwork to finding local partners and community members to co-implement repatriation, curation, circulation and use of materials.


Creating Education and research opportunities.

Preservation and Dissemination

The preservation, restoration, and digitization of the John A. and Alan Lomax fieldwork collections, disseminated via the Lomax Digital Archive, Global Jukebox, our YouTube Channel, and local repositories, bringing functionality, interconnectivity, cohesion and community involvement to our collections.


We support the work of emerging leaders and organizations, encouraging them to make use of our materials, finish projects, and to create new ones.
