The history books don’t always capture the human side of work. Historians and archivists at Swansea would like to learn more about this from you. Come along to this ‘talk and record’ session to share memories of things you did in your working life to brighten up the everyday routine. Your stories could help renew the way we understand workplace experiences in the past. There will be an opportunity to find out more about how working lives are documented in local archive collections. You will also get to take part in the creation of a new audio resource – a podcast about workplace experiences which will include recorded clips from the discussions.

Suitable for adults currently or formerly employed in industrial or manufacturing jobs.
