Living Memory Project - Old Warley


We are pleased to announce that this Autumn and Winter Ampersand Projects are collaborating with the Living Memory project in the Black Country. We will be working across the Old Warley, Oldbury area to celebrate different aspects of everyday life that have been captured through people’s own photographs and archives.

We will be working with local residents and groups to help uncover and exhibit images hidden in family albums, stored away in shoeboxes, and treasured in the collections of local enthusiasts. We will be holding public events for people to come forward with their own photographs and stories of the area.

Living Memory are recording local people’s life stories and memories connected to their photography collections, making a series of new films, professionally archiving over 1000 favourite photographs, creating a new touring exhibition and much more besides.

On their website you can find out what is happening, upload your own photographs and stories, browse the collections as they grow, watch our new films, and apply to volunteer on the project.

Do you have any photographs or stories of the Old Warley area? Get in touch with us or come along to one of the sharing events listed below.
