NEW PROJECT LAUNCHED TO CAPTURE MEMORIES OF SCOTTISH WHALING COMMUNITIES
Creation of new digital platform to provide a space to share this important part of Scottish social history
Over the next two years, The Scottish Fisheries Museum will be working with the South Georgia Heritage Trust and the South Georgia Museum, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and a number of former whaling communities in Scotland to create The Whalers’ Memory Bank.
The Memory Bank will create a living, growing digital time capsule where veterans of the whaling industry, their families and communities can come together to contribute and share their stories with a wider audience.
