Are you recording family oral histories for private use? Undertaking an oral history research about a group within your community? Collecting reminiscence stories in a care setting? We can help you capture, record and store your memories so that they are safe and accessible for generations to come.
Eastside Community Heritage provides bespoke education and training in the field of oral history. Over the last ten years, our historians and archivists have worked with individuals, organisations and community groups so that important hidden histories are documented. Our interactive sessions train people to arrange and set up oral history interviews, devise questions, use digital recording equipment and store, catalogue, promote and share oral histories. We teach you about current ethical standards and
research methodologies so that your work is undertaken with the best care and attention.
“Really enjoyable and informative, I’ve really enjoyed the day and feel I can use the equipment and have the confidence to interview” Trainee
Why are we different? Oral history is what we do best! Eastside Community Heritage has collected thousands of oral history records and they are all available in our archive collection.
