Custodial History

Transferred to Hull History Centre on 4th Nov 2014 from the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA). Collection originally donated to NAEA by Richard Vergette in 1998 under the heading 'Making Spaces Theatre Company'.

The National Arts Education Archive (NAEA), formerly a research resource at Bretton Hall College, University of Leeds, was gifted by its trustees to Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2007 after Bretton Hall College closed. As part of the due diligence process, an audit of the collections was undertaken c.2014 by NAEA@ysp. The Humberside Theatre in Education Collection as identified as being out of place in West Yorkshire when it related specifically to the creative work done by the TIE team in Humberside from 1983-1995. It was felt the collection was better located in the East Riding where it was created and so was transferred to the University of Hull Archives.
