Summer 2018

Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Joined up thinking

It’s getting on for 6 months since I joined the team at Gloucestershire Archives to run the EVOkE reminiscence project and in that time I’ve run sessions in libraries, community centres, memory cafes, care homes and a hospital ward.

Most recently I’ve been working in partnership with The Cheltenham Trust and Cheltenham Borough Homes on an intergenerational project in Oakley and Whaddon. My part was to use our House of Memories app and objects from Cheltenham’s The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum’s handling collection, to spark memories and stories from people living in this part of town. Other parts of the project involved a photographer, a dance practitioner, some local schoolchildren and a musician. There’s a celebration event for the whole project later in the summer which I am very much looking forward to – watch this space!
