Memory Group Workshops


 Tuesdays 9.30-11.30, Maker 2a High Street, Inverkeithing – a group for current and former residents of Fraser Avenue and surrounding area

Instigated by Fife CLD Partnership and The Fraser Avenue Regeneration Project and led by Inverkeithing Arts Initiative

‘An opportunity for conversations about individual experiences of living in Fraser Avenue and the surrounding area, examining the past, witnessing the present and recording hopes for the future. Memories will be shared and recorded through personal art works.

Sessions 1-8: The group shared their own stories, recollections and opinions about the past, present and future of the area – and explored narratives about their own lives and families. Using a variety of mediums including writing, photographs, drawing, bookmaking, model making and collage, each individual transformed their material into independently developed arts projects. Each week the conversations about past and current memories and issues continued around the table, spontaneously and naturally arising and woven around the individual pieces of art.

Sessions 9-16: The group are developing their conversations and ideas into a fascinating group project, chronicling the personal and communal past, present and future of life on Fraser Avenue and surrounding area. The artwork(s) resulting from this joint project were exhibited at The Inverkeithing Civic Centre on 9th-15th June 2017 where it will kept in permanent archive.
