About Us

Imaginary Zoo’s project, Our Words collects, transcribes and publishes online those quiet and sometimes hidden voices that make up our social history. We act as a resource for future generations, validate working experiences and promote information that can inform policy for change.

There are many other exciting and outstanding projects in the UK and we will carry as many links as we can to act as a portal to our shared stories.
