Me on placement in the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, one of UCLan Through the Ages partners!
I’m Hannah, the Project Coordinator for UCLan Through the Ages. I have been involved with the project since its launch in February 2016 where I originally started working for the project as the Heritage Project Assistant student staff member whilst in my final year studying History, Museum and Heritage Studies at UCLan. After graduation, I was able to carry on my time at UCLan and became the coordinator for UCLan Through the Ages.
I am extremely excited to be part of such a brilliant project and to be able to help and encourage students to engage with local history and heritage. The history of UCLan and Preston is incredibly interesting and diverse, to showcase this we have a fab range of activities and events in the planning and I cannot wait to share these with you all!
My job usually varies from day to day but my roles include planning and putting on events, managing volunteers, running the project’s social media accounts, researching and working with students, staff and the local community.
As a recent graduate I count myself very lucky to have a job doing what I love! I currently split my time between coordinating the project, studying part time for an MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies and volunteering for various heritage projects in the North West.
For any project question please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or HeritageProject@uclan.ac.uk.
Look out for our next post from Miriam, the newly appointed project assistant who explains a bit more about the need for the project!
