Archives for 21st Century in your region: Nick Kingsley (Head of Archives Sector Development, The National Archives)

The National Archives and the Museums Libraries & Archives Council (MLA) held a series of workshops for culture and archives colleagues called ‘Archives for 21st Century in your region’ in York, Birmingham and at Kew in June and July 2010.

Exploring how we can work together on ‘Archives in 21st Century’ and the challenges we are facing in the archive sector to turn the policy into a reality for local services was part of our discussion on ‘developing bigger, better and more sustainable services’.  Presentations by guest speakers opened up debate between staff and delegates on how we can develop governance and strategic partnerships to deliver core services.

Listen and watch the audio and video clips from our guest speakers and presenters. Find out what they had to say and download their slides to share with your colleagues.

Nick presents on collaboration and partnership working.

    Dear Mr.Kingsley,
    Your research on the Aytoun family; Fascinating to me as since 1956 I have enjoyed the company of Jean Aytoun (nee Sinclair} whose portrait hangs in my Music Room. I found it in the Portobello Road – sold by Marc Chagall’s nephew who used to buy mixed lots of pictures in London and take
    what he wanted back to Paris on Saturday afternoons. He stood on the pavement and sold off what he didn’t think he could sell. If of interest (not for sale) do get in touch
