New Year, New Stories!

Chronicle is welcoming in the new year by officially releasing our own collections platform!

So far, only our oral history items have been uploaded, but take a look around and let us know if you have any suggestions for when we begin creating digital stories and exhibits about volunteers and voluntary organisations in Cardiff.

Click here to view it!

You can also reach it by clicking on ‘Collections’ in the above navigation menu (the link’s permanent home!).

This collection was made using Omeka, a free and open-source web-publishing platform designed specifically for libraries, archives, and museums – and it suits our project perfectly!

Our collections page will feature all the same content as our account on Peoples’ Collection Wales, but as only items related to volunteering will appear on our page, it has a smaller focus, making it easier to browse for content related to voluntary organisations in Cardiff.

Want to see your story added to the collection?

If so, then do not hesitate to get in touch with us! You can reach us on Twitter or Facebook.

Volunteers will meet with you to record your story or you can visit us at any of our upcoming events! Your story will then be made available on the websites of VCS Chronicle and People’s Collection Wales.
