Worcester Life Stories exhibition
Saturday 12 June 2021 – March 2022
The Worcester Life Stories project was launched in 2020 to boost Worcestershire’s local health and wellbeing by making our shared history and accessible to all.
The project has made Worcester City Historic Environment Record’s 35,000 historic photographs – spanning the last 70 years – 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 Worcester Life Stories 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.
The Worcester Life Stories project is run in partnership between Worcester City Council and the Worcestershire Care and Health NHS Trust. Funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
