Scanning (For) Memories is the next stage of my Pontypool project. I will be setting up and trialling my “Scanning Station” on thursday (25th April 2013) in the Mellor Management Training Incubator between 10 am and 2pm. I will be asking for the public in the town to bring photographs, letters, tickets, nick knacks, anything that holds local memories, to stop by and share those memories, and have the item scanned or photographed as a way of capturing information.
I am hoping that I can capture local stories, personal memories and locations that can be used in my “You Are Here” , (other blog posts here and here) but also to gather together personal effects which can be used in a memory book of the town that I intend to create.
So, if you have any interesting memorabilia of the town, regardless of how old or new, bring it by the Mellor Management Training Incubator on Thursday (25th April) between 10 am and 2pm and share your stories!
