Explore Your Archive is an Archives and Records Association (UK and Ireland) campaign to encourage everyone, everywhere to visit, use and be inspired by archives. The campaign provides a range of resources to help you learn more about archives and help archivists share the collections they care for.
The Explore Your Archive Website is a space for everyone – People who work with archives and records, people who use them regularly and people who have never heard of an archive before. The main message of the campaign is that archives are for everyone, everywhere, anytime and this site will help you get involved. Whether you want to find out more, create an Explore Your Archive branded campaign, or use the available dedicated teaching resources to teach others, there is a resource to help you here.
