Volunteer Registration Form: The Record Store & Black Music (UK History)
We are looking for volunteers from across London & The South, who are passionate about Black music and/or Black history, to help us with an exciting heritage project. This will capture the life & times of UK independent record stores that specialised in Black music, from 1950 onwards. Volunteers will steer research and interviews, to capture this history and share it in a ground-breaking documentary film, website and book. This volunteering opportunity is free.

To take part, you will need to:
  • be aged 18+.
  • have an interest in Black music and/or Black History.
  • be willing to learn new media skills and/or put existing ones into practice.
  • attend 2 x 3 hour sessions of oral history training in October 2023 at the University of Greenwich, if you join the project by then (dates to be confirmed).
  • be able to commit to at least 8 x 3 hour sessions in total, between October 2023 and July 2024.

No prior knowledge or experience is necessary, and the time commitment is flexible on a sessional basis. Some sessions will be scheduled on evenings and/ or weekends, to enable a range of people to take part. We would also consider virtual volunteering, if you are unable to attend in person (e.g. research).

Please fill out this form and submit it before you start the first session.

No personal information that could identify you will be shared externally, but we will share a summary of our volunteer group demographics (e.g. age range, post codes and ethnicities) with 2Funky Arts and The National Lottery Heritage Fund. This will not include names, phone numbers, emergency contacts or health/access information. Thank you for your time and support!
