Important notice: 19/03/20
In line with current government guidelines we very sadly are having to postpone the dates of our ‘Sharing Our Voices’ history workshops and volunteer recruitment. This is very disappointing but it is important that the safety of the people with learning disabilities whom we support comes first, as well as our staff and volunteers. We will post further updates as soon as we know more. We hope we can reschedule the workshops and restart volunteering later in the autumn, although things should become clearer over time.
Thank you so much for your interest in the project.
Grace Eyre is running a series of free history workshops for people with learning disabilities called Sharing Our Voices. In the workshops people will be learning key heritage skills, utilising local archives, and learning how to record oral history.
This is a fantastic opportunity for people with learning disabilities to:
- Be engaged in learning history skills
- Help preserve the history of people with learning disabilities
- Help out on a Heritage Lottery funded oral history project
- Learn more about Brighton’s rich learning disability history – we have photos and documents from as early as the 1880s!
Please take a look at the easyread workshop document with relevant information about the project. If you know someone with a learning disability who would be interested in attending the workshops then please do pass this onto them/their keyworker or carer.
