This is a blog post of a workshop held on 25th October 2018 at Manchester Central Library as part of the Sound & Vision event. It is written by Drew Ellery, Digital officer at Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre. The main aim of this workshop was to give all participants an introduction to best practice strategies for collecting and managing images.
Thursday 25th October from 10:30 – 15:30
Though funding has increased for BAME heritage projects, their visibility in the UK’s museums and archives has not. The aim of this event is to highlight the need for increased visibility of Black, Asian and minority ethnic heritage in museums and archives. This free event will explore the value of preserving memories for future generations and help you to develop some of the basic skills required.
We particularly welcome communities and organisations working to record BAME heritage. The morning will consist of talks from our guest speakers and the afternoon will consist of practical workshops for working with archive material.
On Friday 6th July we held our 3rd annual Community History Showcase at GMCVO St Thomas’s, Ardwick. A huge thanks once again to everyone who contributed; the event could not have happened without your input which is hugely valued and appreciated.
4 speakers shared the challenges and achievements of their projects through illustrated talks:
- Harriet Morgan-Shami and Atiha Chaudry from ‘Memories of Partition‘
- Ibrahim Kala from ‘Bolton Asian Migration’
- Nusrat Ahmed from Big Fat Asian Wedding
