Reanimating Data at Sapphormation
Manchester, 2 November 2019
The Reanimating Data Project is working with interviews from a research project from 30 years ago. The
project was the Women, Risk and AIDS Project (WRAP), which involved interviews with young women aged
15-23 who lived in London and Manchester in 1989. The interviews were about their lives, their friendships
and relationships, their school and work, their families. We think these interviews are valuable and are
archiving them so others can use them.
We are also working with Feminist Webs in Manchester to explore how these stories from the past can be
brought to life now, in 2019. This is a creative project, a youth work project and also a research project. We
are working with lots of groups of women of different ages in Manchester to understand whether the
experience of being a teenage girl has changed over the past 30 years. One of our aims is to improve the
way we deliver Relationships and Sex Education and how we support girls and young women with their
current and future relationships and sexual experiences.
We are running a workshop at Sapphormation to share these stories from 30 years ago and see what
conversations these stories spark now. We will use some writing activities to explore the interviews and
what we make of them now. We would like to use any materials that get created today in the research
project too, and for this we would need your consent. But you can take part in the workshop without
having to allow your materials to become part of our project. Please answer the questions to let us know
what you do and do not consent to.
