A one-day conference exploring the ways in which archivists and cultural heritage professionals interpret their collections

It will also consider how to reconceptualise the idea of the archive to draw in new audiences and the leading innovative practice already taking place

Archives are increasingly being used to engage audiences who may never set foot in a Reading Room. The potential of archives collections for creative practitioners, educators and other cultural audiences is increasingly being recognised, offering archivists and curators new opportunities for collaboration.
