Take part

Working in partnership with Wakefield Historical Society, Wakefield Civic Society and Faceless Arts, we plan to:

  • Involve volunteers from the local community
  • Create a Wood Street archive
  • Create a touring exhibition
  • Offer opportunities for people to take part in training and creative workshops
  • Deliver a project celebration
  • Develop a web-based Wood Street heritage resource
  • Create a film about the heritage of Wood Street

Throughout the project there will be a variety of opportunities for you to get involved, to learn about the heritage of Wood Street or to pass your knowledge on to others. Opportunities include:

  • Recording your personal experiences for us
  • Training in oral history or research techniques
  • Volunteering at events
  • Providing space for exhibitions or workshops
  • Taking part in a workshop individually or with your group
