Title Heritage Partnership to Document Tees Valley's Industrial History Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet Redcar & Cleveland Council Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 1/03/17 Description The changing nature of the Tees Valleys industrial heritage is to be documented and promoted thanks to a new partnership between Teesside University and a local museum.
The University is working with Kirkleatham Museum on the partnership entitled Landscape of Rapid Change which has been developed in response to the recent closure of the SSI (UK) steelworks at Redcar.
The project will begin with an oral history project, called Steel Stories, which will safeguard the oral memories of the steel industry and capture the reaction to the closure of the Redcar plant and the subsequent contraction of the sector. These memories will help inform a year-long exhibition, developed by the partnership and hosted at Kirkleatham Museum...to represent the global and local significance of the iron and steel industry.
