The Documentary Media Centre is an independent museum, archive & library – registered with AiM (Association of Independent Museums).

It operates along the lines of a ‘community of practice’ model:

  • it identifies and connects with active documentarians via the Parallel Lives project – practitioners located across Latin America, Africa, South Asia, and South-East Asia.
  • it provides researchers, educators and students, access to this documentary media content through its museum exhibits, archive and library of documentary films, photography, audio, and new media.
  • it organizes ‘Doc Media for Learning’ events throughout the year.

John Coster is a freelance journalist, educator, and documentarian.
