Oral History Collector


We are looking for volunteers to work with a heritage and media professional to collect people’s personal memories of Middlesbrough Town Hall using digital technology.

These contributed memories will feed into social media and local press as part of the wider programme to engage the general public in the restoration of the Town Hall.

What are we looking for?

Volunteers will need to have good interpersonal and basic IT skills.  Previous experience of collecting Oral History would be desirable.

Volunteers will need to allocate time to training in the collection of oral histories.  During the project’s lifetime of 16 months, each volunteer will asked to give 8 days to the project.

Practical considerations:

You will be expected to attend basic Town Hall Volunteer training before undertaking this role.

Oral History Collectors will receive training in the collection of Oral History.  Supervision and support will be provided by the Project Manager.
