Recalling Radical Times

Radical Times Historical Archive

A useful archival resource focusing on radical activism around Australia, particularly during the period 1965 to 1985 (although not exclusively).

Not only is this archive designed as a tool for appreciating and understanding the past, it is also hoped it will provide perspective and ideas for future endeavours for social and political action.

There is an emphasis on visual/aural material. The archive currently has 142 film streams and 60 audio streams.

Additional resources are included which are outside the archive’s main focus. For example, an international section with films made outside Australia by Australians.

We gratefully acknowledge Radical Times and the Fryer Library for this archival photograph.
