Discovery Workshop: Unlocking the Potential of Archives for Producers – 7 June

Join us for an open morning at Cardiff University for an inspiring journey through Welsh history.

Archives and special collections are places full of stories and inspiration. If you work in non-fiction, drama, art direction, production, research and development: there is something for you in the archive.

This workshop will give an overview of how to unlock archival IP to develop commissions; with an opportunity to develop ideas, handle rare collections, speak to experts and learn how to make the most of collections for the screen and creative industries.

This will be a half day workshop, producers and creative producers are encouraged to attend.
