Over the past month the DATRIS project has been working with a number of communities in South Wales. It has been supporting POINT by donating laptops so that they can help young people in Fishguard who might not have access to IT equipment. They have also been provided with a microphone so that they can conduct interviews with members of the public in that area while abiding by social distancing rules.
The DATRIS project, in conjunction with Prosiect Gwledig Dyfodol Digidol, is beginning to set the foundations for a community training facility based at PLANED with outreach capabilities delivered through the DigiBus. This project is very much in its early stages and there will certainly be more on this topic as things develop.
Work is ongoing with Haverfordwest Museum. DATRIS has been supporting the staff there to learn how to make and maintain a museum website. It is hoped that we will be able to get volunteers to contribute to the site as restrictions ease.
DATRIS is currently involved in a project with the National Museum of Wales to create a platform for the public to engage with work done on the excavation and conservation of the Iron Age chariot found in Pembrokeshire recently. There is sure to be a lot of interesting work ahead with this project…..more to follow on this project soon.
