Creating the Chinese Archive


Our project volunteers have conducted over 55 oral history interviews with community members. They have researched, photographed and filmed key community events and catalogued photographs and documents donated and loaned by the community. Volunteers have also digitised over 11,000 community photographs and documents.

In May 2011, the Manchester Chinese Archive will be deposited with the Manchester City Archives, which will be available for everyone to use. Volunteers will continue to work on the project in its new home.

If you want to join us in our continuing work, we would love to hear from you!
