Many of the artefacts displayed in the Museum are part of an enduring collection. As this has grown, due to limited resource, pieces have been unable to be properly catalogued. We intend to bring the records up to date and advance the information through digital scanning and developing an online interactive descriptive source.
To do this we drew together and assembled information and material into one source to provide a comprehensive resource of research for the historical legend of the area. We trained volunteers in research techniques, collating information, determining the line of enquiry and initiating, along with supervising and participating in the work, to establish and market a genealogy service.
Taking the Museum and its investigations to the communities and people with involvement in production and identification of heritage material and using artefacts relevant to creating events encouraging and giving participation in a range of artistic medium as the vehicle for successful heritage interpretation. Through Artist Residencies which contained workshops and digital media we produced new exhibitions based on archive materials within an intergraded Schools programme which toured the area.
