On its own initiative, Frameworks has documented many events occurring in Cork, particularly those which do not receive mainstream media coverage. They have built up a considerable archive of footage, some of which pre-dates the establishment of Frameworks.
Frameworks also has a deep interest in recording and collecting stories of people’s lived experience. In some instances this may be in relation to a specific project. Other times it is simply an attempt to capture the wealth of knowledge and experience within communities whilst they exist.
