Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is pleased to be delivering oral history training with the Brighton charity Refugee Radio for their new project over the next couple of weeks.
Refugee Radio was formed by refugee and human rights workers in 2008. If you are a refugee or asylum seeker who wants to tell their story, or someone supporting a vulnerable migrant who needs our support, Refugee Radio is there to help.
Looking forward to hearing some fascinating new stories about human rights and migration in the coming weeks.
We’re pleased to be delivering oral history training this summer in Eastbourne for East Sussex County Council to encourage new skills in young LGBT people in East Sussex so that they can record interviews with older LGBT people across the county.
You can book Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage to deliver oral history training to your project or team or send staff and volunteers to our oral history training courses.
