Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Explore your Archive / 18-26 November launch week

Explore Your Archive is a campaign that showcases the best of archives and archive services in the UK and Ireland. The campaign is owned by the sector itself and delivered by a wide range of partners and stakeholders, including The National Archives (UK) and the Archives and Records Association (UK & Ireland). By providing a range of marketing and information templates and materials, it aims to help professionals, volunteers, interns and students celebrate the unique potential of archives to excite people, bring communities together and tell amazing stories.

The campaign aims to open the phenomenal archival collections held by organisations – public and private – across the UK and Ireland, whatever their size and scale, and wherever they are. There is no ‘theme’ and there is no set date, thought there is an annual launch week (18-26 November in 2017). Any archive in the UK and Ireland can take part and freely use the material on this site (though note that the ARA owns the copyright to the campaign branding).

There are a number of events listed relating to, and about photography, which will be of interest to BPH readers coming up including:

  • Sara Stevenson on The Police and Photography in the early years of invention 1840-80
  • David Bruce on John Henry Greatrex: A Very Criminal Photographer
