Outreach Exhibition. Venue: Middleton Arena until June 2017.

This community led exhibition invited people who attend Alzheimer’s Society Memory cafés to take part in arts activities and behind-the-scenes tours of the Museum Collection to trigger memories from the past including stories of glamourous followers of fashion, working life in the local textile mills and ‘Whit Walks’. Inspired by their stories, artists Alison Cooper, Patricia Cartner and Vinnie James have created new illustrations and sculpture to sit alongside Museum objects in this exciting display.
