The Democratic Archive
Stories from Västerbotten
Together with the Popular Movement Archive in Västerbotten County, the museum is participating in a project to find stories in the archives and collections and open the archives to new users and a larger public.
The project is highlighting stories linked to Västerbotten County to expand our understanding of and interest in archives and collections. By combining documents from the Popular Movement Archive with the museum’s photographs and objects, new approaches for collaboration are being explored.
The project is aimed primarily at youth and foreign-born residents, since these groups are underrepresented as archive users and visitors.
