Aims & Activities
On the Record uses oral history to amplify voices and to educate and inspire. Our work builds understanding between young and old, settled and newly arrived. We produce interviews, podcasts, educational materials, radio shows, photographs, exhibitions, books and workshops to attract the widest possible audience for our work.
Work with us
On the Record helps organizations harness the power of memory and experience. We provide advice, training, co-ordination and creative services at all stages of a project. We devise oral and people’s history projects from scratch with a range of partners.
What is Oral History?
Oral history means recording people’s experiences and memories by interviewing them. It can be used in myriad ways. For example to bring different generations together, to discover the causes of ecological problems and to create verbatim theatre amongst other art forms.
