This website is the result of a collaboration between New York University and the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics. It is a "digital venue for documenting the expression of social and political life through performance in the many cultures and political landscapes of the Americas." Visitors can click on "Artist Profiles" to read the profiles in English, Spanish or Portuguese. One of the videos in this section is entitled "Hemispheric Institute Featured Interviews", and once clicked visitors can read comprehensive biographies of interviewees by clicking on "bios" on the left hand menu. Clicking on "Videos in HIDVL" enables the visitor to read a "synopsis" of the video, see what language it's in, when it was filmed, and how long the video runs. There are no translations or subtitles provided for the videos. At the bottom of the "Artist Profiles" page is a link to the "Index of Artists", which not only includes the artists with work on the site, but also the scholars and activists featured in HIDVL.
