The East Bay Punk Digital Archive (EBP-DA) is a project spearheaded by Stefano Morello and funded by the Digital Initiatives, Lost & Found, and the New Media Lab at The Graduate Center, CUNY. It aims to preserve and make available – to researchers, subcultural participants from around the world, and a general public unfamiliar with the topic – the subjugated knowledge produced by participants in the punk-rock commons that loomed in and around the San Francisco Bay Area between the early 1980s and the mid-1990s.
The website allows users to search and browse collections and items discretely or to follow a set of digital exhibitions. The material in the archive – zines, flyers, catalogues, and posters – comes from personal collections of artists, zine-makers, and authors who have trusted me with the digital preservation of their artistic production.
