This ThinkLab project stems from the remarkable historical research work spearheaded by Cambridge PhD student Malik Al Nasir, and is the first phase of a wider strategic development and delivery strategy for the Sandbach Tinne Interactive Exhibit Project. This larger collaboration seeks to create a comprehensive historical archive as well as a series of exhibitions that draw upon collections from libraries and museums across Liverpool, Scotland, Bristol, and Cambridge.
As part of the first phase of research, a multi-disciplinary team of 17 committed and motivated Cambridge University postgraduate students and postdocs reached out to partner organisations and key stakeholders in Liverpool, Cambridge, Bristol, and Glasgow to develop a better understanding of their strategic needs, priorities, as well as any existing collections they may possess. The first phase of the project focused on mapping out stakeholder needs and synergies as well as avenues for further collaboration and partnerships.
