CollabArchive — Explore the Archives
Join the CollabArchive team from Nerve Centre and the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) and hear from the project’s volunteers about this exciting digital engagement project.
CollabArchive is a digital volunteering project creating unique volunteering opportunities for the public to engage with archives at PRONI. The project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Throughout 2022, the skills-based project has been developing volunteering opportunities for underrepresented audiences, extending and enhancing the value of archives to those who traditionally have not engaged with them.
Volunteers have been working with archives across five broad themes of women’s history, migration, disability, citizenship and LGBTQ+, helping to digitise, transcribe, catalogue and make them more accessible for new audiences.
From Monday-Friday during Good Relations Week we will showcase volunteers’ work as they explain the process behind their collaboration with the archives.
