A few notes on this archive.
This archive was created with love for our community and wanting to make sure some permanent record was left of this amazing, creative time. I was never paid, I did it for the love if it. I often approached the organisers and was given free entry into the events in exchange. I’ve always held this archive with an ethical approach with right to use this footage held with the performer, the organiser of the event and myself. I understand that this can be difficult to obtain in this time, So I attempt to get permissions as much as possible for my projects, but I also believe this belongs to our community and we should be all able to celebrate and enjoy all our story.
Lots a respect and love
