Diana is passionate about preserving cultural heritage. At Hackney Archives she has worked to safeguard the An Viet archive – a collection of objects and documents originally based in a former Vietnamese community centre in London. She has collaborated with partners to deliver emergency conservation work and stabilise the collection following vandalism. In the search for a permanent institutional home, Diana has advocated to keep the archive rooted in British Vietnamese communities. Alongside past employment in London in business and operations, Diana has also volunteered with marginalised communities at Hackney Chinese Community Services and with refugees and asylum seekers at Migrateful.
