Community Archives Wales
Digital community archives are collections of material in private hands that have been digitised and interpreted by community groups, enabling the communities to present their own history in their own words. Community Archives Wales (CAW) is a 15-month pilot project to enable eleven groups within Communities First areas throughout Wales to create their own digital archives and share them on the CAW website.
From Warfare to Welfare
The Intergenerational Digital Storytelling Project - 'Maes y Gad i Les y Wlad' (From Warfare to Welfare) is an extension of the project Their Past Your Future. This is an unique opportunity for school pupils and the older generation to work together to create digital stories in order to enrich the pupils' experience and understanding of the period 1939-1959.
