The National Archives of Estonia is participating in 2014–2018 in the project of Community as Opportunity – Creative archives’ and users’ network (CO:OP for short), co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The project has 17 institutions from 11 European countries. The National Archives of Estonia has it’s aim to create 5 web-based topotheques (the aim is to consolidate historical photos and other documents from private individuals digitally) as well as organise “Bring your history!”-days including the general public via crowdsourcing activities, and encourage young people to explore archives by visualising studies in the archives and organising Adventures in Archives.
Also, the project meets the needs of a tighter co-operation by organising international conferences that invite researchers and users to meet and exchange at eye level as well as create a new tool for communication – the European Archival Blog. Finally, there are several digitisation activities and development of databases in the frames of the project CO:OP. Explore and get involved!
