Collecting History is History

The physical exhibition is no more and the collection has been dispersed but this blog will stay as a lasting document of the project. What we found here also lives on in the next string of events at Manchester Craft & Design Centre as they continue to celebrate their 30th year, starting with Crafting History and sampler-cultureclash on 14th July 2012, read about all the events on the MCDC website here.

A sincere thank you to everyone who has contributed to Collecting History, it’s been awe inspiring just how many leads and fantastic stories I have managed to discover in eight weeks. Thank you and adieu.

One thought on “Collecting History is History

  1. It’s been great seeing the stories unfold on here. It’s incredible to discover the building’s past through people’s stories as fishmongers, jewellers, visitors, tea drinkers….I’m an historian by way of my degree and this kind of urban history sharing is much more palatable to me than dry books these days. Thanks to Dena and Lucy for bringing this all to life, and ofcourse people who told their stories and shared their memories.
