Hear Here: Training to Develop Community Sound Archives
The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH) is teaming up with the Connecting Scotland’s Sounds project at the National Library of Scotland to create a new training programme and opportunities to become a Researcher in Residence with a community sound archive in Scotland. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a researcher to get involved in a project and gain invaluable experience in sound archiving.
Connecting Scotland’s Sounds is a project funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation from 2016 to 2017 to champion the preservation and sharing of Scotland’s audio heritage. They offer a wide variety of training programmes and engagement events for those involved or interested in sound archiving.
The three tailored training sessions will cover co-creation of research with communities, sound archiving skills and public engagement. They will be held on three separate dates in February in Edinburgh and Glasgow and experts from Connecting Scotland’s Sounds, Glasgow Women’s Library and SCRAN will deliver the training. Successful applicants who have completed the training will have the chance to apply to work with carefully selected sound archives on a project culminating in a public engagement event.
The call for applications is now open with a deadline of Wednesday December 21st 2016.
