New Project - Liverpool 8 Archive Project - Call for Participants

The Liverpool 8 Law Centre was one of the most significant community organisations in the city. To a community who bore the brunt of the government’s policy towards Liverpool of ‘managed decline’ combined with institutionalised racism, it provided support, legal advice and sanctuary. The exciting new Heritage Lottery funded L8 Archives Project will explore, collate and catalogue the collections of the Liverpool 8 law centre and other key community organisations. Using existing material and through the creation of new audio and visual recordings, a unique and
important archive will be produced, charting the history, events and influences that have led to the diversity of cultures which make up the Liverpool 8 community and BAME Communities across the City. Writing on the Wall are currently recruiting participants to support this exciting project who wish to gain new skills.

Participants will:
· Take part in a 10-week taught course on the historic context of the archive led by local writer Emy Onuora and WoW Co-Director Madeline Heneghan
· Receive training in archiving, cataloguing and video interviewing
· Catalogue and archive community material under the guidance of a professional archivist
· Interview key individuals related to and inspired by the archive
· Deliver their own Local History project

Dates: 
- The first session will be take place on Wednesday 10th January 2018 at Toxteth Library (Windsor Street, Liverpool, L8 1XF) from 6-8pm. 

To get involved please contact info@writingonthewall.org.uk or phone 0151 703 0020.
