Thanks to everyone who came along to the Memory Box events over the half term.
The workshops aimed to encourage different generations to share family stories, to ‘catch’ them in the memory boxes for the future.
This echoes the aim of our project, to capture the memories of Elder migrants, to ensure their stories are preserved for future generations of historians.
We had families from the Philippines, Brazil, England, India, Romania, Cameroon and more. There were all sorts of stories and some wonderful art works created.
We are busy planning more events to celebrate the migrant stories for the Easter holidays so keep an eye out.
