    Friary Park History – a memories & heritage project

    Y-OUR Story: Revealing Friary Park's hidden history through an engaging community-based project that will highlight the sites and sounds of local heritage interest. We will focus on the residents’ memories, local history, historical events, the local community, and more. We will take old stories and bring them to life. This Heritage / Local History project is intergenerational, inclusive and is comprised of training in local history, research, photography, film, oral history, capturing stories, exhibition, and storytelling. The project is rooted in the recognised need for activities for young and old, for intergenerational opportunities, and a project that unites people.  Whatever our history and heritage, we are united in this time and place, sharing a moment/lifetime. If you have stories, memories, photos to share or would like to take part in the training or get involved, email info@artification.org.uk
