Sensor building workshop at KWMC

Today we are learning how to build and programme sensors. Lots of creative thinking going on about how we can use them to collect valuable data for our projects.

Creating a time capsule for MemoryScapes

Here I am building a micro controller circuit (under the supervision of KWMC's tech manager Barry) for our MemoryScapes clock (or Time Capsule). When you open the face, music/memories/messages of your choice can play, and you can store memorabilia inside. Developed through workshops with older people, MemoryScapes is aimed to support people with dementia to reconnect with the past in a full sensory way.

The USBee

An excellent mural created by a group of young people for #STEAM week at KWMC. The USBee was made by recycling parts of old, broken tech.

Filwood Hope Tea Party Fundraiser

Filwood Hope Advice Centre hosted a tea party fundraiser today, selling beautiful homemade cakes and other home crafted items in order to raise money for their centre and also to get to know their local residents a bit better. Emma, the HR manager, said how pleased she was to meet new people and to find out about other projects happening in the area. The centre is hoping to recruit some more volunteers this summer too, so if you are interested in getting involved, please contact Pearl or Emma on 0117 963 4566.

Historical discovery of the day!

Today a man dropped off some paperwork he thought I might like for MemoryScapes. After buying a box of books at a car boot sale, this local resident found these papers- details of the students from Merrywood Secondary School from 1906. Amazing! Even more amazing to see that the father's occupation was recorded right alongside the details of the student's progress!

Do you want your own bespoke Memory Chest or reminiscence workshop?

After MemoryScapes success over the past few months, KWMC has decided to create bespoke memory chests and reminiscence workshops for local community groups. So, if you work for an organisation that supports people with dementia, or you know a group of older people or young people who might be interested in exploring the history of Bristol through a sensory reminiscence experience, please get in touch with me. lucinda.thelwell@kwmc.org.uk, 01179030444

Some personal discoveries from MemoryScapes

Whilst looking through some of my own family's memorabilia to see if it could be relevent for MemoryScapes, I stumbled across these pictures of my Dad, taken by the Red Cross in the early 1940's so they could be sent to his father in Ilag 7, a prisoner of war camp in Austria. The stamp on the back is the official stamp from the Nazi run camp.
