The Rashomon Project is an online toolkit for creating multi-perspective video chronologies to help activist groups better document events, anonymize participants, and share demonstrations in new ways.
The Rashomon Project is an online toolkit for creating multi-perspective video chronologies to help activist groups better document events, anonymize participants, and share demonstrations in new ways. It is run out of the UC Berkeley CITRIS Data and Democracy Initiative with Witness.org, the Guardian Project, the Berkeley Human Rights Center, and the UC Santa Cruz Digital Arts & New Media Program. We are currently beta-testing and looking for activist groups that might be interested in participating in this project and piloting the technology at an upcoming event. Participants' identities will remain private and protected. Contact John Scott at jmscott212 [at] berkeley.edu for more information or check out the website.
