National Library of Scotland: Film Heritage for Community Groups

Venue: 1445 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8AW
Prices: Free

Free session at Kelvin Hall for people working or volunteering in the third sector

Do you work in a facilitation or support role in a community setting? Have you considered using archive films for your cultural and memory projects?

Film heritage can be useful in a wide range of activities including reminiscence, local history research, intercultural exchange, and creative expression. Come along to this workshop at the Moving Image Archive, to share your experiences and learn some new methods.

This session will look at some great ideas for using archive film in community settings, reminiscence, local history projects and working creatively with young people. You will be shown how to use the public facilities at the National Library of Scotland at Kelvin Hall, and see examples of successful community projects that use archive film.

Areas covered:

  • How to arrange a group visit to Kelvin Hall and what to expect
  • Finding footage online
  • Real examples of how archive is used in projects
  • The ‘jukebox’ method of engaging with archive film
  • A chance to meet each other and to ask questions. Light refreshments served!

Please note, this workshop is open to anyone age 16+ working in the voluntary, community, charity, and third sectors, whether in a paid or voluntary role.

The National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive is based at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow. They have a visitor centre and hundreds of films online that document Glasgow and Scotland’s social history.
