Based in the heart of Cardiff Bay, BHAC is a unique, innovative scheme. Our work, which began in 1987, involves local people in collaboration with professional researchers, artists and media workers.
People's histories, together with cultural democracy, are the backbone of our work. BHAC collects, preserves, copies and utilises oral histories, old photographs and other documents; organises community education courses and works with schools and community groups. BHAC is a unique project set up to facilitate the needs of the local community in preserving their history. The Centre has archive material, which includes oral histories, videos, photographs and documents, carefully collected and preserved for posterity.
BHAC provide a focus for people in the local community who want to research local/family history. We also provide the opportunity for residents and past residents, both at home and abroad, to record and preserve their own unique story.
