The evening was presented by Deep Dish TV and organized by Mark Read, the third part of a series entitled DIY Media: Movement Perspectives on Critical Moments. The project is about collecting and distributing the narratives that social movements have currated for themselves; telling the histories that are always in danger of being drowned out and forgotten. It is the task of this project to ensure that this doesn't happen. For more information:
