    [introtext] => Conference at the Royal Armouries Museum on 17 November
    [content] => <p>I'm running a conference at the Royal Armouries next week on '<a href="http://www.museumsassociation.org/find-an-event/ev1148613?RECNUM=7&amp;MONTH=11-2015">New Approaches to Adult Learning in the Cultural Sector</a>'. It's part of <a href="learning/134.php">an EU-funded project</a> I've been working on since April last year. The project brings together educators from six European countries to explore how we can use the concept of historical memory to involve adults in learning.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp; &nbsp;</p>
<p>The conference takes a broader view of adult learning in the cultural sector. It will explore new approaches through case studies and workshops from a range of organisations including the <a href="http://www.britishmuseum.org">British Museum</a>, <a href="http://www.museums.ox.ac.uk">Oxford University Museums</a>, the <a href="http://www.leeds-art.ac.uk">Leeds College of Art</a> and <a href="http://www.leeds.gov.uk/museumsandgalleries/Pages/default.aspx">Leeds Museums</a>. We've got 73 delegates signed up so are looking forward to a good day.&nbsp;</p>

    [content] => <p>On Remembrance Sunday it seems appropriate to post about a website project I worked on for the <a href="http://www.joiningupthehumber.co.uk">Joining Up the Humber</a> partnership earlier this year. &nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The site, at <a href="http://humberfirstworldwar.co.uk">www.humberfirstworldwar.co.uk</a>, uses collections from the museum and archive services in Hull, the East Riding and North Lincolnshire to tell stories about how the region experienced the war. The events in the site point towards learning content I created for the <a href="http://www.mylearning.org/joiningupthehumberww1/">MyLearning</a> site as part of the same contract. We commissioned Otley web design company&nbsp;<a href="http://www.grapple.co.uk">Grapple</a>&nbsp;to design the site and I think they've done a terrific job. Let me know what you think.&nbsp;</p>

    [content] => <p>The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has given initial support to the <a href="http://www.holocaustlearning.org">Holocaust Survivors Friendship Association</a>'s bid to establish a Holocaust Heritage and Learning Centre for the north of England at the University of Huddersfield. </p>
<p>   </p>
<p>HLF recently announced a development grant of £60,000 to enable the Association to research and prepare a funding bid for the £500,000 it will need to create the Centre at <a href="http://heritagequay.org">Heritage Quay</a>, the University of Huddersfield's new state-of-the-art archive centre. </p>
<p>  </p>
<p>I've been working with the HSFA for a number of years now and am delighted to have been involved in preparing the bid. There's a lot of hard work ahead but the planned new development will create the first permanent Holocaust memorial and learning centre for the north of England. </p>

You can find it on the <a href="http://blog.royalarmouries.org/first-world-war-memory-project-2/">Royal Armouries website</a>. I'll be posting weekly for the duration of the project, between now and the end of March. Please pop over and have a look!</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The project is an EU-funded partnership exploring the concept of historical memory in adult learning. I'm working with my colleague Dr Tracy Craggs to deliver a 10-week course to adult learners in Otley on the history and memory of the First World War. There's some background to the project <a href="learning/134.php">here</a>.&nbsp;</p>

    [introtext] => New films telling First World War stories from the Humber now online
    [content] => <p>Three new films telling First World War stories from Hull, North Lincolnshire and the East Riding are now online.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
<p>The films, made by Hull production company <a href="http://www.musicdvdvideoproduction.com/">Nova Studios</a>, have been commissioned as part of the Joining up the Humber project. They tell the moving, personal stories of people from the Humber region who lived through this transformative period in our history.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT2pjuYN-kM">East Riding film</a> focuses on soldier Leonard May, whose experiences in Egypt and Palestine with the East Riding Yeomanry were a world away from his peacetime life as a Withernsea farmer's son.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>From <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se4bsRuuhow">North Lincolnshire</a> we follow brothers Sydney and Arthur Markham to the Western Front. Their poignant story unfolds through their letters home.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>In <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TAT9PDLt8o">Hull</a> maritime expert Robb Robinson tells the dramatic story of his grandfather's experiences minesweeping on Hull trawlers, and we hear about the impact of the war on Hull's German population.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Simon, Matt and Alan from Nova Studios were a joy to work with and have done a brilliant job bringing these stories to life. I hope you enjoy them.</p>

    [content] => <p>I'm currently working with the UK Medical Collections Group, led by the Thackray Medical Museum i Leeds, on an Arts Council-funded project to evidence and promote museums' impact on health outcomes for participants. The network is funding two pilot projects which are working with <a href="http://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums/about-us/staff-profiles/chatterjee">Helen Chatterjee</a> at <a href="http://www.mhm.ucl.ac.uk/index.php">University College, London</a> to test an evaluation tookit Helen and her colleagues have been developing to test the health benefits of museum interactions. On March 5 the Thackray Museum is holding a conference to discuss the outcomes of the research and to address how museums can fundraise for and get involved in further work with healthcare providers. </p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The conference flyer is <a href="assets/files/2013 UKMCG conference flyer.pdf">available here</a> (pdf download). Please contact <a href="mailto:conference@thackraymuseum.org&quot;>conference@thackraymuseum.org&lt;/a> for further information and to book a place. </p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The final project methodology is now available to download from the project website <a href="http://memoriesatschool.aranzadi-zientziak.org/lang/en">www.memoriesatschool.eu</a>. It provides a step-by-step guide for teachers interested in bringing historical memory and living witnesses into the classroom. The methodology is a collaborative production by the six transnational project partners, all of whom owe a huge debt of graditude to our colleagues in Spain for pulling everything together! </p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>We have a lot of final reports to write now but it's good to see all the hard work result in something that will hopefully be of use to teachers and students. I'm very sorry to say goodbye to a great set of colleagues, but we hope to work together again in the future. Watch this space! </p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Emma <a href="http://www.emmakingconsultancy.co.uk/strategy-and-fundraising/border-regiment-museum.php">worked on the Activity Plan for the bid</a> with Malton firm <a href="http://www.plbltd.com/">PLB Consulting</a>. The museum is currently located in a small, cramped building within the inner bailey of Carlisle Castle where the potential for access to the museum's fantastic collections is severely restricted. The bid was to enable a move to the historic Alma Building in the castle's outer ward which has historic connections to the regiment and will provide bigger and better spaces for collections storage, research, learning, interpretation and events. The Activity Plan development included extensive consultation with stakeholders and target audiences and a detailed three-year Action Plan for learning and engagement. </p>

<p><span style="font-size: 120%;"><strong>Using historical memory in museum learning and
interpretation</strong></span></p>
<p>Emma King, Museum
Consultant</p>
<p>Dr Tracy Craggs, Oral
Historian</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>As a society, how do we
remember the past, and in what form?</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Remembering, or choosing
to forget, past events is important because we use our knowledge of the past to
decide how we want to influence the future. &lsquo;Historical memory&rsquo; is how
societies remember, construct and commemorate past events. It is crucial in
creating and maintaining a sense of individual and community identity. Museums
play an important role as repositories and creators of historical memory. </p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p>This workshop will explore
ways in which archives and collections can be used to explore the concept of
historical memory, challenging accepted interpretations of history and helping
learners to develop their critical thinking skills. </p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Based on a case study of
the Sharing European Memories transnational partnership project, the workshop
will investigate different ways of enabling learners to find meaning in museum
collections and create their own interpretations of past events. Through
activity and discussion, and responding to participants&rsquo; interests, we will
explore a range of questions:</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<ul>
<li>How can the
concept of historical memory help us engage audiences in learning and
interpretation? </li>
<li>What are the
benefits and pitfalls of using living witnesses as part of museum learning
programmes?</li>
<li>How can
museums be more transparent in our interpretations and encourage visitors to
understand how history &lsquo;works&rsquo;?</li>

The training programme is part of the survivors' legacy for the future.&nbsp;</p>

<p>24 people attended the first training day at Weetwood Hall on 20 May. The first day covered the historical background to the Holocaust, including the history of anti-Semitism and pre-war Jewish life in Europe, as well as a chance to hear first hand from survivors about their experiences of living in Nazi Germany and of either fleeing to the UK or being transported to slave labour and concentration camps. The second day will take place on Sunday 10 June and will cover the aftermath of the Holocaust, the survivors' message for the future and the skills volunteers will need to communicate survivors' stories to students and community groups.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It is a tall order to fit so much content into two days. The two days of training will be supplemented by a training pack (which I'm currently writing), a detailed reading list and a programme of shadowing visits where volunteers will accompany survivors on public speaking engagements. We have a lot of work to do to develop presentation materials for new volunteers and ensure they feel confident and supported in their role as speakers and ambassadors for the Association. &nbsp;After Sunday's training we will assess and revise the programme and will be delivering it again later in the year to a new cohort of volunteers. </p>

    [content] => <p><a href="http://www.city.ac.uk/arts/creative-practice-and-enterprise/cultural-policy-and-management/research/challenginghistory">Challenging History</a> is a network for people working with difficult, challenging or contested histories in museums and heritage sites. Its latest <a href="http://challenginghistoryconference.wordpress.com/">conference</a> was held betweeen City University, London and the Tower of London at the end of February 2012.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The <a href="http://www.memoriesatschool.eu/">Sharing European Memories</a> team was invited to give a panel discussion at the conference. The project brings together partners from Spain, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and the UK with the aim of creating a methodology that will help history teachers bring historical memory into the classroom. The <a href="http://www.royalarmouries.org/visit-us/leeds">Royal Armouries Museum</a> hosts the UK side of the project, which Emma co-manages together with oral historian Tracy Craggs.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Our panel discussed the approach we're taking to the methodology and the challenges we've encountered along the way: how to take a difficult concept and make it work in the classroom; how to address long-held myths about key aspects of our respective national histories; and how to make a six-way European partnership work effectively (I&nbsp;<a href="blog/working-internationally.php">blogged</a> about that last question a few months ago). I'm hoping conference papers will be released soon - there were some fascinating and provocative discussions. There is also a <a href="https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=CHALLHIST">Challenging History jiscmail list</a>, through which I hope the conversations will continue.&nbsp;</p>
