Generously supported by the Queer Heritage and Collection Network, this webinar will provide archivists and anyone working in the wider heritage sector, with the skills and confidence to develop their own outreach projects, to record and celebrate the queer community. This will be an interactive session, with plenty of time for discussion.
OurStory Scotland is a community history and oral history project founded in 2002 to record the histories of Scotland’s LGBTQ+ communities. We will be joined by its founder Jaime Valentine and current chair, Dom Miller-Graham, to explore how archivists can work with communities, with this session focussing on recording, collecting, and sharing peoples’ stories. Sharing stories fosters community conversation and ensures that histories and collections reflect all of us.
This project has been made possible in part thanks to the Queer Heritage and Collections Network, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
