Your part in history

One of the somewhat dubious advantages of getting older is that there comes a time when your working life is mostly behind you as opposed to stretching out in front as a smorgasbord of future possibilities. As a consequence, I have become increasingly interested in the story of how the community sector has developed over the years. What factors shaped the way the sector has developed? What made a difference? Anyone intrigued by such questions might be interested in a session offered by the GCU archive centre in January.
