At the start of 2017, I was welcomed into the University of Newcastle’s Cultural Collections as part of my placement. I was part of the inaugural team that worked in the new GLAMx Lab (Galleries Libraries Archives and Museums).
Focusing on oral histories, I practised my digitisation and editing skills and worked to upload many interviews and convocation lectures. Being able to look in-depth at Newcastle’s history and then give those stories back to the community was incredibly rewarding.
These recordings can be found on the Cultural Collections Soundcloud.
This video was organised by the university to showcase the spread of interests the Bachelor of Arts degree caters to.
