Junction Arts

This looks like a load of boxes in the back of a van, but trust me – it’s much more than that.  This is the archive of Junction Arts, an arts organisation based in Chesterfield, soon to celebrate its fortieth anniversary.  The papers in the boxes represent decades of highly-regarded (and fondly-remembered) work by the charity.

This is not an end but a beginning.  Over the coming months, we plan to support Junction Arts’ HLF-funded project JA40, by giving training to Junction Arts staff and volunteers so that they can set to work on appraising and describing the collection.  By the end of the process, we expect the archive to be smaller, and for information about its contents to be available on our catalogue.  It’s a way of opening up the history of Junction Arts to the world.
