Participatory Media

A series of meetings and workshops that explore possible digital platforms and approaches to bring to the public a curated set of community documentary films from the 1960s and 1970s.

Participatory Media interactively engages with and presents participatory community media from the 1960s and 1970s. Participatory Media will centralize disparate archives of community media and place them in the larger context of America’s public documentary record. The project will also bring to light the development of participatory media practices, and the social and cultural history of American communities during this era. Through the discovery phase, the project will explore how to provide access to community-made, rare, and often publicly-funded moving images and their related archives; provide a model for community involvement in digital public humanities work, specifically participatory archival, curatorial, and exhibition work; and employ innovative technologies to enable digital participation on multiple levels. The final product of this discovery grant will be design documents that include user interface specifications, technology requirements, and wireframes.
