Dr Andrew Flinn has worked in and with independent and community archives for many years. Most of his work is focusing on a politically engaged community archiving activity. He presented us some of the common characteristics of community-based archives, with particular emphasis on social movement archiving, but also the motivations and objectives of community-based archives to understand them through three linked objectives which are recovery, use and then aspiration and change. He ended with few words on some of the challenges that they face.
