Launch of Explore Your Archive campaign 2018
ARA Scotland is launching the Scottish version of this year's Explore Your Archive campaign with an event in Glasgow aimed at education and heritage professionals.
Archives are everywhere. They are the building blocks which help us shape our view of the world and understand our place in society. The importance of an introduction to archives at an early age cannot be underestimated and the education sector can, and should, play a pivotal role in this induction.
The Explore Your Archive Scotland Launch will take place on 21 November at Hutcheson’s Grammar School, 21 Beaton Road, Glasgow from 5pm until 9pm. A number of exhibitors from the archive sector including the National Records of Scotland, East Dunbartonshire Archives and the University of Dundee, will showcase the innovative work they have been involved in to encourage pupils at both primary and secondary school to engage with archives. They will also be available to discuss the support that can be provided to teachers interested in using archives in the classroom. A wine reception will accompany the launch presentations.
