Copyright and Risk in the Rewind Project ,  Theresa Morley – Heritage Project Officer at Leonard Cheshire Disability Archive discussed the practical aspects of managing copyright issues within the HLF South East funded project – Rewind: Seven decades of stories from Leonard Cheshire Disability. The project involves digitising photographs, films and oral histories and creating an online exhibition space for people with disabilities to explore the history of the charity. She looked at the impact of copyright issues on choosing materials from the archive and the  strategy towards ‘risk’ in putting materials online and using them in workshops with people with disabilities. Read a paper on the project in Aliss Quarterly.
