The Filmed Record and Community History:
Sharing the experience of finding and using film in the community
CAHG are pleased to announce their second regional meeting. This event will provide an opportunity to explore and discuss moving images in the context of community archives and community history.
For the past two and a half years Media Archive for Central England (MACE) has been running a project with community partners across the Midlands seeking out film relating to their community and working with MACE to bring it into community use. Six of these project partners from across the East and West Midlands will make short presentation about their experience of the value of moving image as community heritage. There will be ample opportunity for discussion and questions.
The meeting aims to encourage community archives and heritage organisations to engage with film by exploring the benefits it can bring.
We expect an enjoyable and even entertaining day.
The event will be held at The Hive, Worcester the fantastic new home of Worcestershire archives and local studies, of the city library integrated with the library of the University of Worcester and which also houses the archaeology service all in a wonderful new building opened in June by the Queen. During the day there will be opportunities to have a tour of the Hive.
The meeting is free. Tea and coffee will be provided. Attendees will be required to make their own provision for lunch, though there is a café on site and being in the city centre there are other lunchtime opportunities.
