The Chronicle Project
The Chronicle Project is a two-year community heritage project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project is run by volunteers from Cardiff from a variety of backgrounds. Our aim is to collect and gather stories about volunteering and volunteer work in Cardiff from 1914-2014 in a variety of ways in order to make those stories available to the public. Some of our work includes digitising historical materials, collecting oral histories and conducting interviews, creating videos, hosting events, putting on history exhibitions, and in the future we will create an online exhibition to showcase all of our research.
Most importantly, the Chronicle Project is a project that is dedicated to preserving the stories from the past and sharing them with the future.
The Stories Project is a volunteer run project put on exclusively by youth in Cardiff. The project will display history and heritage relating to Cardiff’s charity work during the period between 1914-1920.
Volunteers will conduct research on WWI in Cardiff to create a series of activities and interactive digital media to incorporate into a series of half term family events at Cardiff Story, Glamorgan Archives, and the Cardiff University Special Collections.
