This year the theme for AfELG’s annual conference is engaging with young people (11-19) and what archives can offer them. The day will provide a good overview on the variety of ways archives can be used to inspire people of this age group, and provide some thought provoking discussion. The day will look at the topic of Government initiatives for the education of this age group, possible funding opportunities and case studies on a variety of projects that have made archives accessible to young people.
