Bergis Jules

Bergis Jules (@bergisjules) is the Director of Equity Initiatives at Shift Design Inc and the Project Director for Documenting the Now, a project which seeks to develop tools and practices that support the ethical collection, use, and access to archival content generated from the web and social media. The work of Documenting the Now was initially developed in 2014 to support archiving of the protests and activism that took place in Ferguson, Missouri after the murder of Michael Brown, and as those activities played out on social media. Jules’ work also involves helping community-based archives, especially those documenting the lives of marginalized people, to build capacity and achieve long-term sustainability.
