Forgotten Fields aims to become more Sociable!

The luminous glow of our Social Media Session
As the project draws to a close
(from the point of view of funding) and the loose ends are tidied, we have a new aim; to communicate the research more widely.

Last night we had the follow up session to our Social Media training with Ally Fogg and Forgotten Fields has voluntarily, but with trepidation, joined Twitter.

This is with the aim of advertising the work we have done and events coming up (rather than to be constantly tweeting.)

One event to look out for is the launch, at the Manchester Histories Festival (21st-30th March), of the Forgotten Fields website which we are now concentrating on updating and improving. Forgotten Fields has a stall at the Manchester Histories Celebration Day in the Town Hall on Saturday, March 29th where we will be showing all our previous work and officially launching the Forgotten Fields website.

The small films made as part of this project by Charlotte Dean and the previous Forgotten Fields documentary film made by Abi McLoughlin will also be shown as part of the festival on the evening of Friday 28th March at the Friends Meeting House.
