Check out this She Does the City interview with Home Made Visible, Artistic Director, Ananya Ohri for more on the premieres, what BIPOC artists she’s excited about, and how we can all support BIPOC artists.
Take a deeper look at Home Made Visible with special projects manager Elizabeth Mudenyo in her interview for This Magazine. She gives insight on the importance of representation, and how archiving the stories of Indigenous people and visible minorities can help underrepresented communities claim their place in Canadian history.
On the East Coast of Canada? You may have seen us making the rounds! An article on Home Made Visible ran in the Oct. 2 editions of the Halifax Citizen, Dartmouth Tribune and Bedford-Sackville Observer, as well as the Oct. 3 edition of the South Shore Breaker.
We are eager to have more contributors from the East Coast! And if you’re in Halifax, you’re in luck, you can have your old tapes digitized locally with the support of our Regional Digitization and Outreach Partner, the Centre for Art Tapes. Check out our FAQ for how you can participate.
In the meantime check out The Chronicle Herald article featuring Home Made Visible’s Special Project Manager, Elizabeth Mudenyo.
Home Made Visible is expanding Canada’s media archives Home Made Visible launched last fall and as we reach the midway point of our project, we took a moment to reflect on the project’s impact thus far and how we’re widening our reach.
Thank you to rabble.ca for being Media Sponsor for Re:collections, the Home Made Visible symposium on how BIPOC communities are engaging in archiving and counter-archiving, held on Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at the Toronto Media Arts Centre (TMAC).

Check out the podcast on rabble radio: the ‘Homemade Visible’ Project’s goal is to increase the amount of video footage of Indigenous Canadians and visible minorities in our national archives @VictoriaFenner
“I remember my late grandfather always recording important family moments with a camera or a camcorder. The footage brings back heartfelt moments of family gatherings and also gives a personal view of history. I am sure many families have home videos on tapes or film reels and sadly, some of them may be falling apart with time. Thankfully, there is a way to keep them!
Toronto Public Library is pleased to partner with Regent Park Film Festival on project Home Made Visible. The project aims to collect old home videos on videotapes or reels from indigenous and persons of diverse backgrounds for free digitization. With families’ permission, a copy of the small segment of the home videos will be kept at York University Libraries.”
