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.

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

Today's MemoryScapes workshop at Knowle West Children's Centre

A big thanks to Knowle West Children's Centre for hosting our latest MemoryScapes workshop/ drop-in. We had a whopping 38 people attend, including parents, staff and children, as well as 4 of our existing members and other local residents. As ever, some hilarious stories were shared and new photographs were brought in and looked at, people in photos were identified and two participants even found out that they were distantly related! If you have anything that you would like to contribute to the installation, please contact me and I would be happy to scan it or take photos of it. Thanks Knowle West, What a great morning!
