All Our Stories: Recording Queer Voices

All-Our-Stories-Web-Banner-QHCN-aspect-ratio-940-400

The Community Archive and Heritage Group Scotland (CAHGS) are delighted to be working with OurStory Scotland again, to deliver a workshop focussing on recording, collecting, and sharing stories. Queer lives are too often hidden in the archives, and OurStory Scotland rescue the evidence of our lives, ensuring our stories are recognised as an integral part of a diverse Scotland. Preserving this history will ensure a legacy for generations to come, keeping our stories alive.

OurStory Scotland is a community history and oral history charity founded in 2002 to collect, archive and present the histories of Scotland’s LGBTQ+ communities, and the session will be led by Dom Miller-Graham (they/he), current chair of the organisation. It will be an engaging and inspirational couple of hours, and provide you with the skills and motivation to create your own projects to record queer voices.

With generous support from the Queer Heritage and Collection Network, the workshop will take place at The Hive, Fife’s LGBT+ Centre, in Kirkcaldy on Saturday 18 February, 13:00-15:00. Travel bursaries are available, so if you are in the Highlands or Islands, Dumfries, or anywhere in between and are interested in attending, please do get in touch (by emailing aos@scottisharchives.org.uk) and we will see what we can do to support!

This project has been made possible in part thanks to the Queer Heritage and Collections Network, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
