In September 2017 we exhibited at the Subculture Archives in Carnaby Street, London.
After another successful tour of music festivals this summer, we are returning to the Bishopsgate Institute for another in our series of archiving sessions. If you know anyone who might be interested and is in the London area, please help us out by forwarding this message to them.

Bring a bunch of resistance materials to the Bishopsgate Institute and be your own archivist. Flyers, newsletters, photos, videos and other disobedient objects are all welcome and will join our massive mash-up of radical materials. Make all of this precious untold history public, accessible and searchable online. Help people to learn from the past, to build the future.
The archiving workshop opens at 10am, when we will help you to organise, digitise and upload your archive. At 6.30pm, there will be a general introduction on HOW TO ARCHIVE ONLINE. There will also be a guided tour to the Bishopsgate Institute library. Feel free to drop in whenever you can between 10am and 7pm. Bring a laptop computer if you can.
The Resistance Archive exists to exhibit and conserve archives from at least the last 30 years of protest in the UK. To get involved, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Richard 07894 350478.
PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT NEED a paper or electronic ticket to enter the Bishopsgate Institute. The library is open for all members of the public during those hours. Please just ask reception to direct you to the library.
