Do you have a Community Archive or Heritage Group near you who deserves some recognition?
The Community Archives and Heritage Group (UK & Ireland) of the Archives and Records Association (ARA) is looking for nominations for their annual awards.
Tell us in 200 words what you value most about your community archive or heritage project. Is it the new stories you discover about your people and place? Is it the way your research and activities bring your community together? Is it the important artefacts and paperwork you preserve for the next generation? Whatever the reason, tell us what it is that makes it special and worth your time and effort.
Find out more and fill in the entry form at https://www.communityarchives.org.uk/content/awards/community-archive-heritage-awards-2022/awards-2022
Please note: your group or project will need to register as a member of the Community Archives & Heritage Group here before submitting an entry. Membership is free.
The closing date for these submissions is 18th March. Entrants will then be shortlisted and shortlisted groups will be contacted in April for more information.
Winners will be announced on Sat 16 July, during the CAHG Annual Conference at the National University of Ireland Galway. This year we are delighted to be co-hosting with the Irish Community Archive Network, Galway County Council and Hardiman Library, NUI, Galway.
