Heritage Lottery Fund support

The development of Saltaire Stories by the Saltaire World Heritage Education Association has won support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The press release on14th December read:

Thanks to National Lottery players, the project will make the Saltaire Archive much more accessible to all visitors and learners interested in Saltaire’s history.  

HLF support in 2016 will enable the project to appoint an experienced archivist to map the Archive and identify key learning themes – supported by a fantastic group of volunteers.  

Working alongside the archivist and volunteers, an experienced educator will assess the curriculum and learning opportunities for students within primary, secondary, further/higher and informal education.  

Development funding from HLF of £11,700 has been awarded to help SWHEA / Saltaire Stories to progress their plans to apply for a full grant at a later date.

Saltaire Stories at the Conversazione

Conversazione

 

This website was launched by the Saltaire Stories team at the Conversazione on 18th April 2015. That historic event (the first conversazione at Victoria Hall since 1964!) was co-ordinated by Saltaire Stories. 1105 people enjoyed a unique mixture of history, art, science, crafts, and entertainment. The conversazione tradition begun in 1878 was well and truly revived, whilst also updated to be more varied and inclusive. Over 100 volunteers took part, individually or in groups running stalls.
