Katrina Kirkwood has just finished archiving the Rhondda Lives films on one fantastic new website: www.rhonddalives.org.uk. There are 80 stories to view.
The rationale behind the project is explained and there’s a description of how the stories were made.
I’m a member of the Museums 3.0 Ning group and I think that group’s members will really enjoy seeing such an innovative melding of existing public archive with personal storytelling by members of the communities depicted in the archive.
I’m sure all the storytellers will be proud to have their stories displayed on Katrina’s new Rhondda Lives website. If you’d like a suggestion of one to watch first … how about this one: Lilian Hobbs’s story about the two-foot-eight?
