Manchester histories- Sam McCormick
Sam talked about where she was from and what manchester histories does. She said that she came to talk about a project called hidden histories working with 5 community groups exploring a part of their history – this will go into an exhibition in Manchester and it will run from November – January. Sam said there were two elements – one of which would be the interactive displays where any aspect of history thats important to us would be displayed this could be youth council or oldham or personal family history.Resources would be needed pictures, documents, mp3s, audio etc. She said that this would be a great opportunity to showcase the youth council in oldham to the rest of greater manchester. The two elements are the community display or the radical thinking display. There will be a trip to the archives in Manchester Between February and May you would need to gather materials and after that you would gt ready to put the exhibition together. Sam asked if anybody had any questions – Marouf asked how many people would take part and sam answered with ‘as many people as you like’. Chris will note the names of those interested. The archive trips will most likely be thursday evenings. There will be an archive set up for the youth council that we can keep adding to.
