HAT Monthly Meeting: Sat Oct 13, 1:30-3pm Ulli Diemer

Saturday, October 13, 1:30-3:00
OISE, 252 Bloor St. west, Room 5-230
Speaker: Ulli Diemer, “Is that an Archive in your Basement, or are you just Hoarding?”

Are you an ‘accidental archivist’? Have you been saving the publications and documents produced by the social justice projects you’ve been involved in? Have those materials you collected grown into a daunting accumulation of stuff in your basement, garage, or storage locker? Are you looking for a solution? Connexions is a Toronto-based project that works to preserve the history of grassroots movements for social change and make it accessible to new generations.
 According to Connexions coordinator Ulli Diemer, “We do it because we believe in the importance of people’s history, keeping alive memories, experiences, successes, failures, and visions” of those who have worked for social justice over the years. Connexions, an all-volunteer project founded in 1975, is best known for its online library for activists at www.connexions.org, which attracts more than 70,000 users a month.
