Lately, the Oral History Hub Sprekende Geschiedenis received good news: the Stimulation Fund for Creative Industry has honoured the application for the project Storianan Skondi di Karibe (The Hidden Stories of the Caribbean).


This project concerns the extensive oral history material Rose Mary Allen recorded in the 1980s and 1990s with elders, (grand)children of enslaved and migrant communities. This important source material is on outdated cassettes and is in danger of being lost if it is not digitised soon.
