Digitally Democratising Archives: Final dissemination

Monday 30 May, 1.30-3.30pm
Free online event

Over the last 6 months, The Audience Agency has been supporting 10 magnificent action-research projects as they ask how (or if) digital technology can bring communities and archives closer together.

In this final event, we share learning from our Digitally Democratising Archives programme which has been supported thanks to funding from DCMS and the National Lottery, as part of The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s, Digital Skills for Heritage initiative.

Digitally Democratising Archives was launched through an open call last summer. 10 projects were selected by a steering group of heritage and culture professionals to take part in the programme starting in September 2021. With training and support, each of their projects has sought to bring communities and archives closer together using digital technology.

Through a series of talks, discussions and case studies, we’ll present our findings and the key themes that arose over the course of the programme. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences, challenges and successes working in the sector.

Facilitated by The Audience Agency’s @penny.mills (Director of Consultancy), @LiamTAA (Consultant), @Nickyhatton (Senior Consultant), @SophiaWoodley (Head of Policy Research and @adam.koszary (Head of Digital).
