Do you work within the archive sector? Do you already engage volunteers, or perhaps you’re thinking of starting to engage volunteers?
Archives can massively benefit from involving volunteers, who can provide their time, skills, experience and enthusiasm. Involving new volunteers with Scotland’s archive sector also increases our collective capacity to look after and bring to life the many stories held in our archives.
Volunteers in turn also benefit from engagement with archive volunteering. Engagement with heritage can empower people, improve wellbeing, build a greater sense of place and strengthen communities. Volunteers can also have the opportunity to meet new people and make friends, develop skills, build their CV, see behind-the-scenes at heritage organisations and more!
At this free Zoom event, speakers from across Scotland’s archive sector will discuss how to engage a diverse range of volunteers with archives. Volunteers from across Scotland’s archives will also speak about the tasks they do and why they love volunteering in archives.
