Last Wednesday morning, I attended a meeting of the Greater Manchester Archives and Local Studies Partnership (GMALSP) in Manchester Town Hall with Research Associate Jennie Vickers. The GMALSP partners include representatives from archives and local studies libraries across all ten (10) Greater Manchester boroughs.

It was a great opportunity to introduce the ‘Coming in from the Cold’ project. Jennie delivered a short presentation and the group showed lots of interest. Moreover, we were pleased to notice that ‘CiftC’ had been included in GMALSP’s development plan. Continue reading “Introducing CiftC to GMALSP”

Celebrating International Women’s Day with the Manchester BME Network

As part of our new project ‘Coming in from the Cold’ we will be working closely with the Manchester BME Network. On 14th March at Burnage Community Centre, Jennie and Marzuqa attended a tea party organised by the BME Network to celebrate International Women’s Day. It was a lovely way to meet representatives from organisations across the city and hear their stories of strength and achievement. These are the sort of stories we hope to capture for the archive during the second phase of our project. We also enjoyed eating delicious food and catching up with old friends.
