Event description

Description

Join us for a focus day exploring how to resource your sound archive through working with volunteers and fundraising.

The morning session will include a workshop on the principles of volunteer management led by Volunteer Scotland and a number of case studies from organisations who have worked with volunteers in their sound archives, including:

  • School of Scottish Studies Archive, University of Edinburgh

  • Tobar an Dualchais

  • Scottish Music Centre

The afternoon workshop - led by Resourcing Scotland's Heritage - will provide you with an overview of the fundraising process and examples from the heritage sector, with a focus on fundraising for sound archives.


Please note

The Connecting Scotland's Sounds focus days are designed for small groups and places are limited; we would encourage you to sign up to events as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out. Please email Amy on a.mcdonald@nls.uk if there’s a training day for which you’re not available, but that you'd like to attend if it were to be repeated in spring/summer 2017.

Terms and conditions

Connecting Scotland’s Sounds training events are free to attend, but we would like to ensure that all participants make a contribution to the programme in the form of feedback. In order to carry out meaningful evaluation for our funders Esmee Fairbairn, we ask that you make time to fill out any surveys that you are sent requesting your feedback.

If there are any events where less than 8 people have booked to attend, the event will be cancelled. If an event has to be cancelled, Connecting Scotland’s Sounds cannot be held liable for any pre-booked travel or accommodation. Booking deadlines are set for two weeks before the event is due to take place, and at this stage confirmations will be issued to all those who have signed up to attend.

We welcome participation in our training programmes by students and other interested parties, but if an event is oversubscribed we will prioritise places for participants who are currently actively caring for Scotland’s sound archives.
