a-zone.org is now archived

The Old Market / Albert Street Autonomous Zone website (a-zone.org) is now archived.

See www.91albert.com for information pertaining to the current rental operation at 91 Albert St, Winnipeg, including units available for lease, a business directory, and contact form.

For your historical interest, see the old website at archived.a-zone.org.

Keep in mind that contacts, directory and so on are out of date there.

Older versions of the site going all the way back to 1999 are found on archive.org's WaybackMachine.

Further information and links to press coverage are found on the wikipedia article (which could use some update love). Additional historical press coverage can be found by searching The Uniter, The Manitoban, Community News Commons, Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Sun, and possibly other sources local and international.

Much has also been written and said about Winnipeg's Mondragon Worker Co-operative, which was the anchor main floor tenant from 1996-2013. Here's a 7 minute video on YouTube and the archive.org/WaybackMachine link for the 2007-2013 website. The trailer from Alison Burdeny's 2017 BellMTS Stories From Home documentary is interesting as well.

For more inquiries regarding the archiving of the a-zone.org website, contact Mark Jenkins mark@parit.ca.

Mark may also be able to provide access to archival video footage of the 24 hour marathon fundraisers held in 2010 and 2011 to the right request. (Someday this footage will be posted, permission was gained from almost all performers)
