Migration Stories North West is an exciting three year Heritage Lottery funded project that sees us working in partnership with Global Link, Cumbria Development Education Centre, Cheshire Global Learning, Lancaster City Museums, Lancaster University and Crossing Footprints. A 3-year Heritage Lottery funded project, Migration Stories NW will research and document 100 stories of migration to and from the Northwest of England since the Romans.
Year One – working with community research volunteers to explore historical stories from archives across the city and beyond. Volunteers will be supported to develop archive, research and story writing skills. COMMUNITY RESEARCH VOLUNTEERS – INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION FORM
Year Two – working with local school children to collect oral histories from friends and family.
All of the resulting stories will form part of a unique learning resource, including an interactive map and more.
If you are interested in volunteering as a community researcher, or think your school would like to be involved in the project, get in touch with email@example.com for an informal chat. We’d love to hear from you!
