Helping to inform and inspire young people
Year 7s became mini archivists for the day at the London Metropolitan Archives. Read our lastest blog post for details!
Drawing on the experience of a series of digitisation projects run by The Creative Society, we will work to build relationships between the school and the London Metropolitan Archive to provide students with work experience and skills in the sector. They would help secure the legacy of their borough through the digitisation of photographs and film. These are skills that are highly prized in the job market and not easily obtained within the normal curriculum. The project will build staff understanding of the needs of the library and archive sector through work experience placements. At the same time we will introduce the schools to the film sector, which regularly makes use of archive footage. This project will also give staff an understanding of partnership working and the inter-relationship of the commercial and state subsidized sectors in the creative industries.
