Come along and explore ways to tell the stories and memories found in audio recordings, with a focus on recordings held by museums, archives and libraries. We’ll have a mix of case studies, presentations and workshops to give you lots of ideas about how sound can be used to create connections, enrich enjoyment and enhance learning.
