North East Wales Archives is pleased to announce a bid has been submitted to secure National Lottery Heritage funding.
The joint service, a collaboration between archive services in Denbighshire and Flintshire, has submitted an application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund to help fund a new purpose built archive centre, based next to Theatr Clwyd in Mold.
The passivhaus building will contain an exhibition space for co-created displays, learning spaces for creative activities, a digital lab and separate research rooms for researchers and explorers.
There will be a state-of-the-art conservation studio, collections handling areas and storage areas, all adhering to industry standards.
The bid also contains provision for the development of a range of exciting activities designed to bring the archives to life through drama, music, dance and creative writing.
These activities will enable the rich documentary heritage of North East Wales to reach new audiences and to inspire them.
The outcome of the bid will be known in July.
