Title WATCH: Thousands Of Arena Attack Tributes To Be Digitised As Part Of Permanent Archive Media name/outlet Tower FM Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 26/07/18 Description Dr Kostas Arvanitis, Senior Lecturer in Museology at the University of Manchester, said:
“Over the last year, students and staff of the University of Manchester have worked with the Manchester Art Gallery and other city and cultural organisations, local communities and businesses to preserve, document and store items that people left in St Ann’s Square and other spontaneous memorials around the city.
Through the digitisation of the archive and a collaborative research programme with cultural partners in Manchester and other cities in the UK and abroad that have suffered terrorist attacks, we aim to understand the impact that archives of spontaneous memorials have on shaping personal and collective memories of the events and on challenging existing museological and archiving practices.”
