Vox Pops provides high quality oral history training to groups and individuals throughout the UK. Founded more than fifteen years ago, the organisation has advised and supported over 30 projects. Training is tailored to the needs of each specific project and its participants and will guide you through the key steps in carrying out your oral history project, including research, interview techniques, ethics, equipment and how to use your interviews.
Vox Pops is run by Stephen Kelly and Judith Jones, and they are both experienced oral historians. Stephen is the North West networker for the Oral History Society and established the Centre for Oral History Research at the University of Huddersfield. Their most recent personal project has been an extensive oral history of Granada Television, Granadaland – you can find out more about it at granadaland.org
In addition to delivering oral history training, Stephen and Judith can advise you about how to apply for funding, particularly through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
