About the Day

 

Llafur: Welsh People’s Society and the Oral History Society are pleased to be hosting an oral history professional development workshop. The day is intended to be an opportunity to discuss oral history practice in Wales whether you work on your own, in a university, museum, library or community project.

 

The workshop is aimed at those already engaged within the field of oral history and related disciplines. The event is designed to give established oral history practitioners an opportunity to reflect upon their work and share ideas with like-minded professionals.

 

In order to facilitate discussion the number of participants is being limited to thirty. As this is a free event we would recommend that you book your place as early as possible. While lunch will not be provided there are a number of cafes within the museum (directions provided on the day).

 

If you are interested in developing your professional practice we would be delighted if you could join us on Saturday 22nd November 2014.
