OUT! is a project celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender histories across Greater Manchester using digital technologies. It is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered by Manchester Pride.

This 3-hour training session, led by David Govier (Archives+) and Abigail Ward (Manchester District Music Archive), is aimed at equipping LGBT history enthusiasts with the skills required to interrogate archives and open up access to our city’s LGBT heritage, which, due to legislation and social stigma, has often remained hidden.

The session will be held in the beautiful, wood-panelled Chief Librarian’s Office, which also offers a top-floor vista of the bustling Oxford Road corridor.

Central Library is wheelchair accessible. If you are interested in attending this event and would like to discuss your access requirements, please contact: abigail@manchesterpride.com

Booking is via Eventbrite. Please note: places are limited, so we’d be grateful if you could let us know if you can’t attend.

We are proud to be part of Manchester Histories Festival 2016.

Join Manchester Pride for a day of training on recording interviews and oral histories within the LGBT community.

Learn how to capture spoken word recollections and preserve them for future generations. This is a free, friendly event and lunch will be provided. All welcome!

OUT! is a project celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender histories across Greater Manchester using digital technologies. It is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered by Manchester Pride.

This event, led by Dr Fiona Cosson (MMU) and Abigail Ward (Manchester District Music Archive), will be a fun and friendly day aimed at equipping LGBT history enthusiasts with the skills required to record and preserve oral histories for future generations.

It will be of particular interest to members of the community who feel they would like to highlight elements of our city’s history, which, due to legislation and social stigma, have remained hidden.

Trainees will learn about best practice in oral history, interview techniques, use of mp3 recorders, basic audio editing and preparing files for submission to the sound archives held by Archives+ at Central Library.

Some recordings will be chosen to feature in the digital exhibition space at Archives+ and will also form part of the OUT! online portal to be launched in June.

We are excited to be hosting the event in the International Anthony Burgess Foundation – a beautiful library, archive and study centre just a few minutes from Oxford Road railway station.

The IABF is wheelchair accessible. If you are interested in attending and would like to discuss your access requirements, please contact: abigail@manchesterpride.com

Booking is via Eventbrite.

Please note: places are limited, so we’d be grateful if you could let us know if you can’t attend.
