Sampad staff learn the art of silence

On 15 April it was the turn of Sampad staff to be trained by Helen Lloyd as they undertook a taster day of oral history training. Although they will not be recording any interviews themselves, it extended their knowledge of this unique skill and gave them the opportunity to appreciate the work our oral historians are currently undertaking.

It also taught them the art of not speaking over people, something which does not come naturally to most!

The day was rounded off with Hall Green Councillor, Barry Bowles, being a practice interviewee, answering their questions and sharing his fascinating life with participants.
