Are you interested in media studies, journalism, history, local life or tourism?

We are actively encouraging young people (age 16-25) to take part in our oral history interviewing as part of our Memories Captured project.

This training at Coombe Bissett Village Hall is free and is an opportunity to gain knowledge and hands-on practical skills; experience in interviewing; using audio recording equipment; and data handling and storage.

To sign up head to our Volunteer Hub.

Memories Captured is an oral history project which is being delivered in partnership with Blandford Museum. The project aims to invite local people to tell us about their stories and memories. These will be recorded and entered into the archives of the Dorset History Centre.

Led by Blandford Museum, volunteers will help us to uncover and gather stories and living memories. From those who have experienced the Chase & Chalke area, capturing stories of how the land was managed, how wildlife patterns have changed, what craftsmanship and skills were used, such as charcoal making, coppicing, hurdle making and water-meadow management.

All volunteers will receive free training from industry experts in Oral History, Archiving and Historical Research to provide them with the necessary skills to embark on this exciting project.
