Occupy Archive

Co-Director, 2011-13: Occupy Archive http://occupyarchive.org

occupyCo-organized the planning and launch of a digital archive and online collecting site to document and save the digital evidence from the Occupy protests in 2011-2012. Together with Dr. Sharon Leon, we organized a group of 10 volunteers at RRCHNM to design a website, write a custom Omeka plugin, and customize a form to collect photographs, websites, fliers, announcements, blog posts, and other digital materials generated by the international Occupy movements. With no funding available, we were able to close a significant gap in documenting the Occupy movements, and were received national press attention for our efforts.
