Are you interested in capturing memories of working lives?
Join us for a live chat on Thursday 20th September from 12.30-1.30pm when we'll be discussing the challenges and opportunities in collecting stories of working life.
Find out why capturing stories of working life is important and what you can do to engage and encourage people to share their stories and memories.
Hear first-hand from our panel of experts – they will be sharing the successes and challenges they have experienced in collecting stories of working lives, as well as providing top tips on collection and documentation.
We're pleased to be joined by Colin Hyde (Researcher and Outreach Officer, East Midlands Oral History Archive), Kate Crossley-Halls (Collections Officer, Erewash Museum), Norma Gregory (Historian, author and speaker), and Sophie Clapp (Boots UK Archivist).
Jonathan Platt, Head of HLF East Midlands, says: “Often when we think of our history, we think of kings and queens… We believe that the experiences of the people who helped build the country are just as important and should be recorded. Through our Working Lives campaign, we’re hoping to celebrate and capture people’s recollections of working life for generations to come.”
Working Lives is a campaign being run by HLF East Midlands to encourage people to share their stories of working life in the region.
