We are very open to the form that this guide might take. It could aid users in a whole variety of ways, whether through displaying relationships between materials, producing annotations around them, finding new ways to share and show materials together, or making an intervention into the digital organisation of deposits.
Saying that we are particularly interested in proposals that incorporate any of the following:
If you’re interested in applying please come to an open event to look at our collections and work-in-progress digital archive on 25th April between 6.30-8.30pm and see what you might want to do with them. If you can’t make the event let us know and we'll arrange a time you can pop in the archive. You can view some of our material online however this is only a fraction of what will eventually be in the online archive so we recommend you come to the event or come and see us in person.
To Apply: Please email a brief of your idea, what
collections you would be interested in using and how your guide would
engage audiences in new ways to rosemary [AT]
maydayrooms.org. Please also include either a CV or examples of
previous work that you feel might be relevant,
The fee for this commission is £500 and you will need to conduct some onsite archival research at MayDay Rooms. Deadline for applying is 7th May and the project would need to be completed by the end of August.
Mayday Rooms will support this project by giving access to the archive, space for the chosen project to develop and loan of the equipment. The MDR collective will also assist and support you though all stages of the work.This project is kindly supported by the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust
