Radical Times Historical Archive
An archival resource focusing on radical activism in Brisbane and Queensland in Australia during the period 1965 to 1980.
Not only is this archive designed as a tool for appreciating and understanding the past, but it is also hoped it will provide perspective and ideas for future endeavours for social and political action.
You will find a variety of accessible, easy-to-read articles summarizing and critiquing the history of this unique period of time and place. There is an emphasis on visual/aural material. The archive currently has 100 film streams, plus 21 interviews, radio programs or music as streaming audio. There is also hundreds photographs. Additionally, a number of publications from the era, and those written in retrospect, are reproduced as PDF documents.
Material is also presented which is outside the time frame and locality of the archive's main focus. This includes resources (mainly films) pertinent to N.S.W. and Victoria, along with some international resources. The archive has resources from five main regional areas as listed below:
(1). Resources: Queensland, Australia
(2). Resources: New South Wales, Australia
(3). Resources: Victoria, Australia
(4). Resources: Nimbin Aquarius Festival, May 12 to 21, 1973
