Bite Size Talk: Worcester Life Stories
Tues 10 August, 1:30pm – Worcester Life Stories
Join Museums Worcestershire’s curators on the 2nd Tuesday of each month for a series of talks about the collections.
Hear all about the newest exhibition at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum – Worcester Life Stories.
This project was launched in 2020 to boost Worcestershire’s local health and well-being by making our shared history and accessible to all.
Worcester City Historic Environment Record’s 35,000 historic photographs – spanning the last 70 years – are have been digitised, themed and available for the first time. This new digital hub will capture local knowledge and memories, which will be included in a published book and Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum’s exhibition.
The exhibition will showcase photographs alongside the memories of older adults, in particular those living with dementia in the local area. The exhibition has been designed to be fully accessible and dementia-friendly.
Bite size talks are approximately 30 minutes long.
In-person talks cost £3 per person.
An online version of this talk will be released a week after the in-person version. Accessing the talks online is free but donations are welcomed. This will be a shorter, modified version of the in-person talk to reflect being conducted online.
