Cinemobilia: Mobile Media Lab

CineMobilia is a new mobile infrastructure that is being launched by Archive/Counter-Archive at Nuit Blanche (project members include Janine Marchessault, John Greyson, Patricio Davila). The CineMobilia project is a flexible, responsive infrastructure tailored to the unique archival needs of Canadian marginalized communities, specifically collections with limited staff, those with difficulty making their collections represented and discoverable, and/or collections that represent an underserved/underrepresented community (Indigenous and Black communities, women, the LGTB2Q+ community, and immigrant communities). The hope is to attract members of York University and surrounding communities to bring their analogue or born digital archives to be preserved. The 1970s trailer will be decorated with many small screens as well as film projectors.

 Programmed by Archive/Counter-Archive as part of The Year of the Arts at AMPD; Curated by Janine Marschessault
