Call for participation from Contextual Alternate

An initiative to create a publicly sourced archive of a single day, as seen through newspapers across the world

Join us in creating a publicly sourced archive of a single day, articulated and comprehended through newspapers from all around the world. Calling all readers, designers, print-aficionados, or anyone interested, to take part in our project ‘Drafts of history’, exploring the contested domains of news, ephemeral artefacts, circulation networks, publics, and archives.
