Credit is due to all the people who have worked on the Reminiscence Archive and the Reminiscence Theatre Archive website
People listed below have worked on listing, cataloguing, digitising, editing, and indexing the archive and uploading material to the website. Many have come to us via the European Commission through their Assistantship scheme. This was a tremendously positive initiative to support people from across the EU to study and work for up to a year away from their regular work to learn new skills and have time and opportunity to plan for change in their working lives. The European Reminiscence Network was lucky enough to benefit from belonging to this scheme and receiving Assistants over a 5-year period up to 2015.

We gratefully acknowledge funding granted by the University of Greenwich to house the Reminiscence Theatre Archive and to create a website for it. In partnership with the history and drama departments, we then employed Community Sites Ltd to train and help us build up this site. We had help from many people to input material, led by Jake Stevens from the UK and Zbyszko Fingas from Poland. The website was launched in 2013 with a conference on creative oral history, reminiscence theatre and the preservation of records relating to creative arts projects derived from oral histories.
Many students of drama and history at the University of Greenwich have helped on the archive as part of their work experience or course work, transcribing and digitising oral histories, watching and commenting on past theatre productions, diigitising related publications, photos and films. Second and third year students of Drama from Greenwich have also explored the website and archive, finding inspiration to create new work, developed their own reminiscence theatre shows.
