Mantle Arts
Audio Editor
Location: East Midlands
Deadline: 30 May 2020
Mantle Arts is looking for an experienced Audio Editor to edit audio material for a range of projects up until June 2021

In the mid 1980s to early 1990s Mantle Arts’ work was focused on oral history. The organisation recorded memories of local people that stretched back to before the first world war, and distributed them on audio cassette, as well as using them as the basis of local history books such as ‘Getting the Coal’, a history of the Leicestershire coalfields, and ‘Voices from Bardon’, recollections of the residents of Bardon Village before it was demolished to make way for Bardon Quarry.

The ‘North West Leicestershire Voices’ is an 18 month project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, that will return to this recorded audio, preserving it via digitisation, and using it as the basis of a range of interpretive projects that will make this rich archive of local history more widely available.
