Oral history project training

Young people from Seahaven Academy were trained in November 2022, by Nicole Benge from Brighton based oral history organisation Strike a Light. The team were introduced to the craft and skill of interviewing, listening and recording people’s histories. 

The young oral historians were taken through the importance and significance of oral history and how it contributes to us understanding the past in relation to the present.

For part of their homework they interviewed a family member and shared their findings with the group.

Wonderful stories

We found out some wonderful stories tucked away in the folds of everyday life.
