On March 5th between 5pm and 7.30pm Knowle West Media Centre will be hosting a free community tea party to celebrate the memories of South Bristol. Come along and indulge in the free afternoon tea and get involved with our art installation based on the stories of local residents, share your own memories with other local people and explore the archive of memorabilia we have collected. All ages welcome!
A big thanks to Knowle West Children's Centre for hosting our latest MemoryScapes workshop/ drop-in. We had a whopping 38 people attend, including parents, staff and children, as well as 4 of our existing members and other local residents. As ever, some hilarious stories were shared and new photographs were brought in and looked at, people in photos were identified and two participants even found out that they were distantly related! If you have anything that you would like to contribute to the installation, please contact me and I would be happy to scan it or take photos of it. Thanks Knowle West, What a great morning!
