Diversity in Archives
How can working with communities make a difference?
This is Ian, talking about how we would would set up projects in all kinds of communities. Hopefully, by working with passionate volunteers and historians, helping them to get the best use out of their own collections, we can help to spread the word about how amazing conservation can be.
We believe that archive collections, big and small, are the very stuff that communities are made of.
We are a team of professional conservators who want to help all kinds of communities to care for
their collections and access the resources they need.
Have you got an archive that needs help?
