ACTIVITIES AND RESULTS

Workshops helping participants learn techniques relevant to successful recording of  memories retained by the community. The workshops also looked at the ethical and legal questions of privacy and permission to use such gathered evidence. A skype link was organised for one of the workshop days in order to demonstrate that oral histroy concerning the Garioch could also be gathered fromthe ‘Bennachie Diaspora’. A working group was set up to begin a more comprehensive programme of gathering this local oral historical resource.
