Archive Project

The collection of stories and objects connected with each of the buildings is enormous. Keeping track of them and making sure that we know what is actually available is a major project and one that presents huge opportunities for the long-term.

This project will produce an archive catalogue and database for each Cluster member, worked to international best practice. It will enable members to begin the process of properly recording their archive material or building on what they have already started to do. This information is invaluable for exploring new stories to tell, sharing information across the Cluster, and potentially supporting members to start new programmes or tourism and business opportunities.

We are working with partners who will provide the coordination and practical support for the database creation. They can also support skills development within the members and provide a new opportunity for us to build volunteer and community involvement.
