SCA is delighted to be working with the Dunkeld Community Archive on a new project ‘A Year in the Life of a Community Archive’.
Throughout this project we will be sharing monthly updates from the Archive to learn more about how a community archive functions, the challenges it faces and the opportunities it captures.
Dunkeld Archive is an accessible, trusted resource and an important social hub, a place for like-minded volunteers to engage with visitors and meet each other – and they have an incredible programme of activities, events, exhibitions, walking tours and so much more. Managed by Ruth Brown, with the help of a part-time project-based assistant Imogen Bell and many volunteers, the Archive is a hub of activity for the local area.
