An Introduction to the Alternative Toronto Digital Community Archive

Wednesday February 27, 7-8 pm

Join Dr. Lilian Radovac for a talk about the project Alternative Toronto. Alternative Toronto is a collaborative digital community archive that documents Toronto’s alternative cultures, scenes and spaces of the 1980s and 1990s. The project uses open source archival tools to preserve ephemera like posters, flyers, zines, manifestos, photographs, videotapes, audio cassettes and artworks, and provides public access to materials that tell stories about the history of radical, countercultural, anti-racist and trans/feminist/queer activist movements in our city.

Dr. Radovac is a media and cultural historian at the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information & Technology at the University of Toronto Mississauga, and the director of Alternative Toronto.
