Hacking the Archive: Co-designing the next 50 years of social action
Hacking the Archive is a hands-on civic adventure to uncover new ways to tell activist stories that have changed the city of Boston. Anchored by a unique partnership of neighborhood youth, area activists, college students and professional archivists, this project will prototype a street guide for progressive social movement building. Working on teams analyzing a range of historic social justice topics including racial desegregation of public schools, how to build coalitions, urban migration narratives and democratic economies, you will help blaze a new trail for future action.
Participation by INVITE only. Limited seats available on a first come, first served basis. Your eventbrite RSVP will alert the #hackorganizing team to review your request to be invited. Tell us about more you! https://forms.gle/ALjcAyKr62eauCxe8
