Help Us Build the London Housing Struggles Archive- Open Meeting
November 25, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
Do you want to help build a housing struggles archive?
Do you hold any materials from a housing campaign?
Are you interested in learning how to catalogue and digitise your material?
We, in MayDay Rooms, decided to try and document both the unprecedented scale of the attacks on social and affordable (and adequate!) housing in London over the last years on social housing and the amazing resistance people have been showing. We think it’s fundamental to preserve the history of those campaigns, which in the future will inform and inspire more resistance.
We would like to build this archive together with the people involved in the campaigns. We are therefore holding this open meeting to bring together activists and other interested people so that all have a say in the formation of the archive.
We are also planning to organise a series of digitisation and cataloguing training workshops for activists who are interested in learning ways to document and archive their struggles themselves.
If all these sound interesting to you and you would like to be involved in one way or another but can’t attend the meeting email firstname.lastname@example.org
