Explore Your Archive is a campaign that anyone can take part in at any time. Use the branding to promote events run by your organisation or run your own specific Explore event to raise awareness of your collections.
Each year there is a main Launch Week for the campaign and we aim to hold a launch event in each of the four ARA ‘Nations’ in that week – in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (the ARA has an Ireland region that covers the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland). A social media campaign is also run across the week and all record keeping organisations are encouraged to get involved in some way.
In 2021, the launch week will run from 20 – 28 November
