After 15 meetings our first Change Minds group has reached the pause point in the journey, as we move into the next phase of a new group starting in October. This first group will carry on meeting monthly in the meantime, building up towards our final exhibition phase in September 2017.
We celebrated so well! Books and poems are now in a pop-up display in the Archive Centre, beautifully mounted by the Conservator. One participant brought in her lovely quilt about the project, transforming logos and memories into a sparkling piece of textile art. Jennifer Holland, Head of Libraries at Norfolk County Council handed out certificates to every participant, and we all had the chance to revisit the Case Books in the Record Office’s new glass box in the Search Room. Tara Greaves from the Eastern Daily Press came to write a piece about the project and interviewed two participants.
It was a special day.
