Time Travel Northumberland
In 2010 we were awarded a grant of £49,837 from the Digital Film Archive Fund for our Time Travel Northumberland project. Via the project we will work with Northumberland Youth Service to recruit young volunteers to help deliver the project. The volunteers, accompanied by the project worker, will run Film Archive Roadshows in towns and villages across Northumberland. The Road Shows will encourage the deposit of film with the archive at Woodhorn and project monies will allow us to digitise this content and make it available via our website thereby increasing access to the collection. The project will also allow us to develop cataloguing standards for our moving image collection and to embed these in our core work. The project will run from 2010-2011.
