The Commonword Ghosts Projects is looking for volunteer interviewers. Ghosts is an Heritage Lottery Fund Project in Manchester centred on the Nile, Reno and PSV clubs that played a key role in bringing together as a community those people who migrated from the Caribbean to Manchester in the 1950’s and ‘60’s.
Volunteers will be paired with young people from the community and will gather anecdotal evidence and memoirs from elders in the Caribbean community. In order to facilitate this you will receive training in audio recording to ‘archives’ standard.
The project will go on to create a publication and website based on the material gathered, highlighting the origins of the modern Caribbean community in Manchester and the richness and diversity of its contribution to our civic history.
