We are thrilled to have Ruth McKew and Ruth Darling of Headland Design, and Independent Consultant, Kevin Bolton on board, in preparation for the second phase of Coming in from the Cold. They will help us review the first phase findings from our audit of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) community archives across Greater Manchester. They will also assist in our Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) application for the second phase of funding. Ruth, Ruth and Kevin have knowledge and years of expertise in the heritage sector working in museums and archives.
As consultants we are always keen to act as advocates for the projects we support, and to play a key role in raising their profile through our established networks and further afield. We are also very aware of the need to put strategies in place to ensure the sustainability of the project moving forward and to mitigate against the ‘temporary visibility’ of externally funded projects.
