I’m emailing to ask if any archives services are working with refugee groups.
I’ve written a blogpost for CILIP (http://www.cilip.org.uk/blog/welcoming-refugees-uk-libraries), and am gathering together examples of work by archives, libraries & museums to add to the piece on The Network website: http://www.seapn.org.uk/post/how-can-the-cultural-sector-support-refugees.
Look forward to hearing from you,
