24 Hour MuseumDate: Monday, 28 February, 2005
The 24 Hour Museum and the Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail have announced a new and exciting partnership to develop and publish five Sikh Heritage web trails in English, with Punjabi translations.
Trail production is currently under way, with 24 Hour Museum staff using ASHT as a resource centre. Each trail features links to the relevant information on the ASHT website, whilst highlighting our ongoing research into Sikh-related collections and locations in the UK.
"We hope the partnership helps the Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail project to develop their website", said Jon Pratty, 24 Hour Museum Editor. "It will also allow 24 Hour Museum to benefit from their undoubted expertise in this crucial cultural sector."
The five trails cover London, the East Midlands, the West Midlands, The East of England and the South East. They are planned to be ‘live‘ on the ASHT, 24 Hour Museum and the recently launched 24 Hour Museum City Heritage Guides within the next few months.
The City Heritage Guides are a Culture Online government-funded project, intended to bring more regional content and new audiences to the 24 Hour Museum.
"This new partnership is a great illustration of the way museum and heritage sector bodies like ASHT are joining in with the City Heritage Guides project, adding value and sustainability to the investment Culture Online have made in the 24 Hour Museum" added Mr Pratty.
