Who we are
People’s Heritage Co-operative is a constituted cooperative since 2014 and a member of Cooperatives West Midlands. People’s Heritage Co-operative’s members have extensive experience working on community heritage projects through our own funded projects and in partnership.
Our members include archivists, digitisation specialists, oral historians, creative practitioners, archive outreach experts, academic staff and researchers interested in archives. We are members of SARA – Schools Archives and Records Association. We initiated and manage Paganel School Archives, the first and only ARCHON registered repository Archive located within a State Primary School.
We promote and raise awareness of peoples heritage to contribute to community cohesion and increase understanding of our diverse heritage. We support our members to more effectively work with people to share our culture and heritage, developing their practice by promoting collaborative work, increasing participation in exploring and interpreting Birmingham’s heritage.
