Celebrating archives and the collections held in them is a main focus of Explore Your Archive.
Anyone can take part in the campaign 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 dedicated Focus Week for the campaign, during which we aim to hold a launch event in each of the four ARA ‘Nations’ – 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 runs throughout 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
