The People’s Archive

The People’s Archive is our onging project documenting and preserving YOUR images of everyday life, society and culture in the UK. 

The archive gives a platform and an important voice to people and communites across the UK, telling their own stories through photography and highlighting real life as it was for many of us growing up before smart phones and social media.

As well as exhibiting the archive across towns and cities in the UK – we are currently crowdfunding towards our long term goal of a permanent exhibition space in the North West which we are looking to establish in 2020/2021.

You can see a selection of the archive on our People’s Archive Instagram page HERE
