About this Event

In order to help SSNs, Sporting Heritage members and the wider Heritage sector respond to the impact, issues, and challenges they face as a result of the Covid19 Pandemic Sporting Heritage is working with Jo Boardman & Fran Stovold to offer a series of FREE practical webinars on subjects relevant to the sector.

These webinars aim to assist individuals and organisations with the short-term issues and challenges that many are currently facing managing their collections, day to day operations, and funding/investment as well as take into consideration the medium to long term recovery planning priorities that need to be addressed to be able to adapt to change.

Why add oral histories to your collection?

Oral histories can bring collections to life. Join heritage consultant Fran Stovold and co-host (tbc) for an informal introduction to collecting personal testimonies, and in particular sporting memories. We will discuss a range of topics to help you get started including how you might approach interviewing during the current COVID-19 situation.

This short live online session will include a 40 minute presentation exploring collection best practise as well as a live Q&A session and signposting links for further advice and resources from across the heritage sector from the host.
