8380389-old-book-with-copy-space-and-inkstand-isolated-on-white OutStories Bristol is developing a collaborative project with the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council. We are calling this project ‘Place‘ and it will create a permanent digital archive of the LGBT history of the Bristol area.

We hold monthly planning meetings to oversee the project, develop ideas and co-ordinate volunteer activities. Come along, meet a nice bunch of people, and get involved! We meet around a table in the pub and enjoy a drink too.

Next meeting:

Tuesday 10 March 2015,     7pm to 9pm

Old Market Tavern,     29-30 Old Market Street,     Old Market,     Bristol     BS2 0HB

Old Market Tavern                       Map and location

We will shortly be arranging separate sessions to carry out specific aspects of the project – research in local archives and libraries, oral history interviewing, digitising material for upload to websites, etc. If you have expressed an interest in any of these activities, we will be contacting you in the next few weeks to arrange a convenient time and place to meet. You don’t need to come to the monthly planning sessions – nevertheless you are welcome!
