Here I am building a micro controller circuit (under the supervision of KWMC's tech manager Barry) for our MemoryScapes clock (or Time Capsule). When you open the face, music/memories/messages of your choice can play, and you can store memorabilia inside. Developed through workshops with older people, MemoryScapes is aimed to support people with dementia to reconnect with the past in a full sensory way.

After MemoryScapes success over the past few months, KWMC has decided to create bespoke memory chests and reminiscence workshops for local community groups. So, if you work for an organisation that supports people with dementia, or you know a group of older people or young people who might be interested in exploring the history of Bristol through a sensory reminiscence experience, please get in touch with me. firstname.lastname@example.org, 01179030444

Pop down at lunch time or when you pick your kids up and someone from KWMC will be there to show you how it works, but it is open to the public throughout The centre's regular opening times too. There's space to record your own memories of South Bristol, explore the memories of other residents or just to sit down and watch old films in the original Filwood Broadway cinema seats.
