What is People’s Record?
People’s Record will be a national community archive of people’s responses to hosting the Games. Our funding will support a network of People’s Record schemes across England, built on partnerships between museums, libraries and archives and community groups. We are particularly keen to encourage projects which develop participation by disabled persons or increase disability representation. MLA is also developing the online platform to host and make the archive available in the long term.
How to apply
