Ready, Set, Archive!
Finding community-based solutions for creating human rights archives and databases
Jackie Zammuto and Yvonne Ng from WITNESS will share their experience collaborating with grassroots collectives to develop a low-cost database for tracking community documentation of police abuse as well as practical archiving workflows aimed at a volunteer-run organization. We hope to learn about how others’ archived video collections are being used for advocacy and the challenges and opportunities you’ve faced in creating accessible archiving approaches.
If there is interest, we’d love to make this an ongoing conversation on the V4C forum as a way to share and learn from each other’s archiving practices.
It’s all happening: Thursday 15 April at 09:00 EDT | 15:00 CET | 20:00 BKK

The Refugee Law Project takes this opportunity to share with you Bringing Up Our Enemies’ Child a film that dives into the nuances of what it means for a community to come to terms with the impacts of Conflict Related Sexual Violence.
Bringing Up Our Enemies’ Child comes at a time where there continues to be a global build up condemning Conflict Related Sexual Violence. It is also a time when the not so old question of children born of war continues to be discussed. The film traverses the individual, family and community boundaries asking of policy makers, humanitarian actors, academics to reimagine interventions.
The film trailer is available here and will be premiering on the Wednesday, 15 September 2021 at 2:00pm East Africa Time and you can set a reminder to watch it here Bringing Up Our Enemies' Child - YouTube
