We were delighted to welcome participants, parents, teachers and members of the public to the Highland Archive Centre in Inverness on the evening of Tuesday 28th March for the launch of ‘Mining the Archives’ – a display of creative writing by adults and children inspired by archives.
The readings, including several by Millburn Academy pupils, were thought-provoking and imaginative, and the display of works, photographs and pupil feedback was enjoyed by all. All pieces submitted have now been included on the website www.ambaile.org.uk and can be found by searching ‘Mining the Archives’. Please do have a look at them. The display will remain in the Archive Searchroom until the end of April and we’d love to welcome everyone to have a look at these amazing creations!
