02/08/2017: Project Workshop @ RRCHNM

For this month’s Project Workshop, we are going to take time to talk about what role RRCHNM can play in responding to the current political climate and state of affairs.

In the past, RRCHNM has pulled together unfunded projects, or assisted others in doing so, as a reaction to current events. The Omeka team helped VA Tech put together a digital memory bank in 2007. Occupy Archive was an effort driven totally on Center volunteers in 2011. Eric Gonzaba started the TrumpProtestArchive.com on his own in late January.

Bring some ideas and a pen. We will be brainstorming on Post Its. Our goal is to discuss and select at least one form of action, and then devise an implementation plan.
