  • to create the circumstances through which the historical material can be re-presented, made readily accessible and activated by means of a variety of educational means

 

  • these educational means are to be carried out in a spirit of co-learning and include workshops, forums, presentations, screenings and open debates

 

  • to encourage, through these educational means, a new and diverse relationship between historical material and the public

 

  • to furthermore, seek through these methods and an open-access ethos, to raise historical awareness

 

  • to promote and encourage a spirit of research and self-education not only in relation to the materials held by the Project but in the public at large

 

  • to enter into co-operative relations with other Bodies

 

  • in liaison with the holders and donors of the material it will be endeavoured to make the material more widely disseminated by means of digital display, publications and small scale exhibitions

 

  • at all stage of the process the Project will endeavour to encourage participation at the widest level
