Showcasing the Blaenau Gwent Access to Heritage Project at Digital Past 2015

With a number of initiatives this project aims to make the rich local heritage of the County Borough accessible to as wide a range of people as possible.  Frank Olding and Emyr Morgan will be at Digital Past to talk about the project, discussing how they’ve established a partnership of local heritage organisations to offer training and advice to volunteers and community groups and a project website which provides community groups with a presence on the web and a place to make their archives accessible.

The website also includes on-line resources, school visit formats and themed exhibitions to enhance educational activities and increase school visits at local heritage attractions.
