The SEEME project collected the life stories of 30 BAME people living in Wiltshire. The project ran for 3 years from 2010-2013 and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Many of the interviews were conducted by young people including 6th form students from 2 local schools and undergraduates from UWE. The complete interviews together with transcripts are available at Wiltshire and Swindon Archives.
