Moving Memories: Migration in Community Archives

We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the Community Archives and Heritage Group’s (CAHG) 13th annual conference. This free day of presentations, workshops and poster displays will be held in the Mitchell Library in Glasgow on Wednesday 10 July 2019. Places will be limited and we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment!

The conference will be co-hosted by the Archives and Records Association (UK and Ireland), Glasgow City Archives and the Scottish Council on Archives and aims to provide a platform for volunteers, community groups and professionals to learn from one another, share experiences and create future working partnerships. This will be the first time the conference has been to Scotland and we hope you can join us to celebrate the richness and diversity of community archives across the UK and Ireland.

This year’s theme is on migration in community archives and will feature Dr Saqib Razzaq of Colourful Heritage as the conference’s keynote speaker. The programme also currently features:

  • Larysa Bolton and Dr Alexander Mitchell – Protest, pysanky and pechevo: scoping the archive of the Association of Ukrainian Women in Great Britain
  • Caroline Catchpole (The National Archives) and Bette Baldwin (Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust Community Archive) – Moving memories, moving data: manage your collections and Discovery
  • Lorna Elms (Irish Community Archive Network) and Hazel Morrison-Pagett (Moycullen Heritage Group) – Bringing home the Irish diaspora: the community archive as conduit, connector and catalyst
  • Catherine Gillies (Scottish Community Heritage Alliance) – We are all in it together!
  • Mia Gubbay (Glasgow Museums) – Collecting around Kurdish cultural heritage: questions, challenges and experiences
  • Harvey Kaplan (Scottish Jewish Archives Centre) – Documenting Jewish immigrants and refugees in Scotland: the work of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre
  • Don Gray and Dom Miller-Graham (OurStory Scotland) – Coming in: archiving stories of migration and identity in the LGBT+ community
  • Jo Robson (The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust) and Zara Hakobyan (Aratta) - Community-led collecting: Decentring the Power of the Archive

The full programme can be viewed here.

The day will also reveal the winners of the annual CAHG Awards and will be rounded up with a ‘One Minute Mayhem’ segment where delegates have a 60-second ‘soap-box’ opportunity to share their news and views on any aspect of community archives. Delegates can opt in to this during the registration process. There will also be an opportunity to attend a lunchtime show and tell of the treasures of Glasgow City Archives. Delegates must book to attend the tour separately below, as well as for a conference place.

Running alongside the afternoon session, there will also be the option to attend two alternative sessions. Places for each are limited to 20 per talk, and again need to be registered for.

How to book:

If you would like to attend the lunchtime tour and one of the afternoon sessions, please select a conference ticket, a tour ticket, and the relevant session (or both) below. If you just want to attend the conference, only a conference ticket is necessary.

Finally, as part of this year’s conference, we are giving groups the opportunity to design and display their own A1 poster showcasing their activities and projects. We can provide guidelines, templates and examples of posters and will professionally print your poster for display during the conference. Your poster will be available after the conference for your group to use in future outreach events. If you would like to display a poster please email a.wilson@scottisharchives.org.uk

Please note that photographs will be taken at this event to be shared on social media and both the SCA and CAHG websites; if you would prefer not to appear in the photographs please email a.wilson@scottisharchives.org.uk
