Our meeting schedule for 2023 is:
Wednesday, 15 March, 1-4pm at Mansfield Museum, Leeming Street, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG18 ING.
Join us for our first in-person meeting of 2023, where we’ll have the opportunity to learn about working with memory and reminiscence in museum and heritage settings, to share with one another and to network.
Jodie Henshaw, Curator of Mansfield Museum, will present about the museum’s Reminiscence Tea Room – a monthly sharing session for people with memory impairment, their friends and families – and there will be an opportunity to see the work ‘in action’ during a live Tea Room session. Susan Clayton, Volunteer Curator of Flintham Museum, will share the museum’s work creating the ‘Daisy Game’ and working with it in memory cafes, nursing homes and social settings. There will be time to share news with one another, network and enjoy light refreshments (included with registration) during the meeting.
Thursday, 25 May, 2-4pm at Nottinghamshire County Hall, Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 7QP, including presentations about funding for museum and heritage organisations. This meeting will be a hybrid meeting, with the opportunity to attend either in-person on online via Teams. More details and registration to be announced.
