Migration Project

The Cumbria Development Education Centre (CDEC) is looking for people to take part in a heritage project researching and documenting immigration and emigration stories to and from the Northwest of England since Roman times.  

Global Link in Lancaster is leading the project with development education partners in Liverpool, Manchester, Cumbria and Cheshire. It will result in a digital map, teaching resources, exhibitions and films, all designed to ‘normalise’ migration, and to be used in anti-racist teaching. 

CDEC is looking for volunteers to participate in the project. The volunteers would carry out archival research, and write up their findings as stories for the website. There is more information below and a training and get-together session for volunteers is planned for 28 July.   

Please contact Gabi Lipska at gabi@cdec.org.uk if you would like further details.
