Volunteer and get involved

FrancescaHistory of Place is a nationally important social history programme that charts the lives of deaf and disabled people from the middle ages until the late 20th Century. History of Place will explore and animate eight built heritage sites, unveiling the stories of the people who inhabited or designed these places.

There will be a range of ways people can get involved in this project across the eight locations, including creative workshops, talks and tours, archive and research groups and filmmaking workshops for young people. Please sign up here for our newsletter so we can keep you up to date with news and events as the project unfolds.

Read our blog to discover how the project is developing and find out how you can join in, or contact Francesca Lashmar for more details.
