A digitisation project dedicated to conserving and promoting Sudanese cultural and documentary heritage. Discover Sudanese history and culture through the contents and stories from various private and public archives.

Throughout Sudan, many collections are at risk due to extreme weather conditions, lack of appropriate storage, neglect and conflict, and many archives are not easily accessible. Sudan Memory’s mission is to help preserve this unique heritage and make it accessible for current and future generations. More than 100 team members, from the various collections, have worked tirelessly to digitise thousands of images, pages, films and photos. We are grateful for each and every contribution. Capacity building is an integral part of Sudan Memory, and staff in partner organisations and private collections have been trained in the fields of scanning, data description and data management.

The project is funded by the British Council Cultural Protection Fund and the Aliph Foundation. King’s College is the project lead. The National Records Office (NRO) and Sudanese Association for Archiving Knowledge (SUDAAK) are the major national partners.
