The Vision Archive: Picturing the World We Want to Live In

How can open source, community-owned archives help us build the world we want to live in? What if community members could easily access, use, remix and re-catalog the contents of those archives? In this session, we'll share lessons from the development of Visionarchive.io, an open source library of visionary icons co-created by artists and activists. We'll whip up some icons, tinker with the catalog and remix icons into posters, inspiring new ideas about archives and new collaborations.
