Join our team of oral history volunteers

Oral history trainingAre you passionate about social change and celebrating women’s place in history? Would you like to join our team of oral history volunteers to help collect stories from East London women activists?

Following the success of our first training course earlier this month by Rib Davis, we are delighted to announce a second training day for all of those who missed out. You will have the chance to learn about the importance of oral history, what memory and false memory is, the ethics of oral history and practical elements such as archiving, transcribing and recording equipment.

Following the training you will join a team of around 20 other volunteers who will go out and record interviews with women around East London. These will be used as part of our walking tour app and exhibition, due for launch in summer 2016. We are also working in partnership with the Bishopsgate Institute to archive the interviews so that future generations can learn and be inspired by the women who went before them.

The next training is on 27th January. Get in touch if you would like to be part of it.
