Documenting Resistance: The Historical Imperative of Archiving


The idea for the workshop is to give time and space to an Indymedia network facilitated discussion about video archives. Discuss possibilities for establishing a video archive in order to reach an understanding about how to make available, properly store, and create longevity for Indymedia footage.
