Hidden Histories Hidden Historians
Hidden Histories Hidden Historians is
a Manchester Histories’ project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project has been working with communities across Greater Manchester with the aim of supporting less
familiar histories and heritage; that is to say, the histories of the people,
buildings, families, communities and places that make up our lives.
These histories can become ‘hidden’
because they are not always as well known or recorded as the high-profile histories
that are well-known in our region.
Nevertheless, these more hidden histories often
shape us and the places we live and Manchester Histories are thrilled to be
supporting people across Greater Manchester to uncover them.
The project is almost coming to an end with the last chance to see the multi-media exhibition by five community groups from across Greater Manchester who have explored their own hidden histories; taking them on a journey to becoming historians.
- VENUE: Archives+, Manchester Central Library, St Peters Square, Manchester M2 5PD. Continues to 31st January 2018
Over the last two years the project has:
- Supported communities to explore and share their histories with
- Offer people the opportunity to develop excellent histories
and heritage skills to better equip them to tell their own stories
- Strengthen individuals, communities and organisations who are
currently promoting hidden histories and heritage by offering support and
opportunities to network
