Would you like to keep in touch with OurStory Scotland, and perhaps engage in further storytelling with us? Contact us!
Inspired by the MOCO project (Mass Observation Communities Online: see right panel) we have now made available several ways for people to tell online about their lives. We devised a questionnaire that guides you through a number of questions and lets you write as fully or briefly as you want. In the spirit of Mass Observation, we have also designed diary and observation tasks that can be submitted online.
Remember to read our Terms and Conditions before submitting online. Your contribution may be made public! Clicking on the headings below will open a pop-up window to enable you to submit online (you may have to allow pop-ups for OurStory Scotland).
Here is a small sample of the contributions to the OurStory Scotland archive made through Mass Observation Communities Online
Questionnaire completed by 41 year old female Call Centre worker
Diary for 12 August by 62 year old retired male living in Scotland
Observation by a 29 year old PhD student from Glasgow
OurStory Scotland Archive
The collection of online contributions (questionnaires, diaries, observations etc.) will be archived at National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh. They form part of the OurStory Scotland Collection in the Scottish Life Archive.
OurStory Scotland has been an active participant in Mass Observation Communities Online. This has enabled people to contribute material about their lives directly online.
