WITNESS has launched the HUB. This is the first participatory site devoted to human rights media.
As archivists we would love to see participation from those in the archival community, including though not limited to the uploading of human rights related archival footage. The purpose of the site is to provide a platform for change and activism, but we believe the inclusion of older documentaries, footage and other media will be important to provide context and depth to any issues being spotlighted. We will be drawing on our own collection, but believe this is a tremendous opportunity to engage others who might hold human rights media to provide access to them, thus illuminating their ongoing relevance, and providing deeper understanding of current struggles and issues.
