Manchester Digital Music Archive is an online community archive established in 2003 to celebrate Greater Manchester music and its social history. We are a registered charity run by volunteers. Our website is a place for people all over the world to share music ephemera and memories, be they fans, musicians or involved with the music industry itself. We are passionate about celebrating the hidden chapters and under-represented communities within Greater Manchester music. We believe that through crowd-sourcing artefacts we can democratise heritage and provide a platform for multiple versions of history to be shared. There is no hierarchy of 'merit' within our archive. The general public decide what is important and what is 'heritage'. When funding is available, we also curate physical exhibitions and pop-up events across the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester. We are community engagement experts. We regularly deliver at conferences and festivals. We provide advice and placement opportunities to students working within a range of disciplines. We support and connect those who approach us for help in their work, such as film and TV companies, broadcasters, researchers and writers. We encourage a donation to our Trust for this work.
