On Friday July 14th and Saturday July 15th between 10am and 4pm, you’ll find us outside the Waterfront Building in Ipswich (close to the site of The Hold) trying to tempt people to record their memories of this part of Ipswich!  Part of our summer programme of pilot activities associated with ‘The Hold’, the session is intended to help train University of Suffolk students and volunteers how to capture oral histories, as well as to enhance our understanding of the wider area of where The Hold will be located.

Local creative digital company ‘Chronicle Digital Storytelling’ will be on hand to help us on the day, and for some participants, they will create a unique, digital version and printed postcard.  Here is an example of their work, ‘Joining the Eagles’ https://vimeo.com/223479193

If you’re interested in participating you can just turn up, but you can also let us know you’re coming along by emailing: amy.rushton@suffolk.gov.uk.  Bring along any photos you have that help illustrate your story and we can create some fantastic results!

Drawings of The Hold will also be on hand for those who are interested to see the latest designs.
