This project is a collaboration between Cathy Leech, Georgia Anderson and Ash Reid, who are independent researchers working in public histories, oral history, feminist cinema and archiving practices.
We are looking for materials relating to the Claimants Union movement in the UK from 1968 to the present. Oral history interviews will take place via Zoom or in person and will include a consent form and acknowledgement of the following aims and objectives of the project:
To collect and archive the oral history accounts of members involved in the Claimants Union movement in Britain from the late 1960s to the 1990s.
To edit together and produce a collection of memories of the movement to be produced into an audio piece to go on this page.
To archive the oral history interviews online and in a suitable archive.
To collect any visual material relating to the Claimants Union movement to accompany the oral histories collected.
If you have any questions about the project, or any material you would like to add to it, please do contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
