The Peace Process: Layers ofMeaning project, based at DkIT and funded by the EU’s PEACE III programme, is offering free training in oral history skills.
The programme, which will commence in 2012, is open to all staff and students from DkIT, as well as anyone who lives or works in the border area and might wish to develop their oral history skills or embark on an oral history project. We are particularly keen to hear from members of local historical and cultural groups, teachers and trainers, and those involved in the community and voluntary sector.

The skills acquired in the course of this work are highly transferable and that they can be adapted to suit a wide range of disciplines, modes of social investigation and vocational activity. They will be of particular benefit to anyone embarking on youth, community development, or professional work with those who have experienced marginalisation or disadvantage.

An Information Evening is scheduled for 23rd November at 7.30 pm at DkIT If you would like to attend, please contact Margaret Andrews, Project Manager (Room S229) by email margaret.andrews@dkit.ie or phone the office on: 042 937 0420
