Video event report: Building Digital Capacity Seminar: Creative use of archives

As part of the BBC Academy and Arts Council England joint Building Digital Capacity programme, the SCA was very pleased to participate in its creative use of archive workshop. It focused on how to share existing archive content with an audience on a digital platform and explored new ways of engaging audiences with archive content.
