We are holding 2 open days on the 10th and 11th September to show films of the camps and to collect more stories,so if you were a former camper please come along and record your 2 minute tale.
Goldsmiths College, London are working with us to make the digital tales and later workshops will involve linking the audio stories to still photographs and film.
