The end of April marks the end of the funding period for Our Screen Heritage.
After 18 months of workshops, history clubs, exhibitions and events it’s fair to say that we did a lot!
There have been 68 new titles added to the collection as part of the project. This is a huge increase of LGBTQIA+ representation in the archive’s collection and has created a whole new resource within the archive. That’s also not to mention the five exhibitions, library displays, gala shows, exhibition tour, immersive installation and all the History Clubs that were curated and run as part of the project!
A selection of the films that were made and collected as part of the project have been catalogued as part of the collection, and are now being added to the SASE website.
As part of the project work SASE has critically looked at and reviewed its language-use and keywords, which is especially relevant when it comes to cataloguing. As a result of this work the team have written a new Inclusive language policy, as well as expanding many keyword definitions and adding in new ones where needed. This is a vital and ongoing piece of work.
And whilst the project funding has ended, SASE remains keen to receive footage from LGBTQIA+ individuals and organisations. This work doesn’t end with Our Screen Heritage!
