Phase Two involves working in partnership with young people, care experienced adults, and care workers to explore what types of everyday information or records they would like to be able to access, at what point in their lives, and why. From this, we will work together to create “ living archives “ that will be accessible to those who live and work, or have lived or worked, in the residential children’s homes. This phase will run from September 2021 until March 2024.
Update -November 2022
We are currently working with young people and adults at a children’s home in Scotland to explore their ideas for the living archive. They are in the process of recording potential content for the archive, which we will then discuss as a group in terms of what should be included, consent processes for those who are in pictures/videos/audio content, and who should have access to the archive. Malte Heyen, our colleague from Germany who is leading on IT and technology, recently visited the home in Scotland to discuss the potential look and functionality of the archive.
