Interactive Protest Archive

Basic Description: A temporary, public installation of protest materials from movements that have been important in your community.

How to: Ask participants in protests that are important to your community to share materials they produced as part of their activist work. Display these in an open public space to discuss successes, failures, and tactics for moving forward, using the display to spark productive discussion.

Inspiration: David Widgington is actively working on making an interactive archive of protest materials from the student protests of 2012 in Quebec.

Impact statement: The Interactive Protest Archive can help local activists gather together, explore their shared creative productions, and strategize for future movements. Community members who may not have been involved yet can learn from past experience and become part of the conversation, perhaps leading to future collaboration.
