Volunteer Coordinator: HLF ‘Layers of London’ Project
Karina Flynn is the Volunteer Coordinator for Layers of London, a project to create a website bringing together a significant collection of historic maps and other London-related resources for the first time, and working with community groups, schools and the general public to encourage them to contribute information about the London that they know.
Before joining the IHR Karina was Project Officer at YMCA Norfolk working with young people and volunteers on a broad range of programmes to engage them with local heritage. Karina also worked for Eighth in the East, a project which worked with communities across the Eastern Counties to preserve and record changes in the social and landscape history which occurred in the region during the Second World War.
She has a Master’s Degree in Arts and Heritage: Policy Management and Education from Maastricht University, and a BA Hons degree in History of Decorative Arts and Crafts from the University of Brighton.
