Lives and Legacies 1919 - Volunteers Wanted

Following on from the success of The Great War to Race Riots Project, Writing on the Wall is teaming up with The University of Liverpool on an exciting new project – Lives and Legacies 1919, to continue exploring the impact of the 1919 race riots and the lives of those who were affected by the violence and the social and economic climate of the period.

We are looking for a team of volunteers to take part in the project to explore; Marriage and Partnership in Liverpool, Legacies of 1919 on Merseyside, and Official Responses. Lives and Legacies will culminate in a public event to share what we have discovered.

The project will run for 10 months and you can decide on the elements of the project which interest you most. We will also provide training in any skills which you may require, including archiving, conducting interviews or any other aspects of the projects.

The project begins with and introductory session on 28th February. If you interested in getting involved please contact Madeline by email; madeline@writingonthewall.org.uk or call 0151 703 0020.
