Our oral pop-up event held in the former Baker’s Dozen shop at Midsteeple, Dumfries was a great success. Through the course of the day we had many visitors to our small exhibition about the town and about our Study.
Many of those who came along were interested to hear of our work in Dumfries and Galloway. This interest has resulted in a good number of people asking to participate by being recorded and by conducting interviews. This encouraging level of interest and engagement leads us to consider repeating this exercise in other places across the region.
I attended this event and found it fascinating. I have been in touch with the organisers to take part.
