Mantelpiece with Digital Artist Michelle Brace

Members of the Creative Collective share their personal stories connected with treasured objects.


September/ October 2020

A Creative Collective Sound Project.

As part of Creative Conversations in Isolation programme, artist Michelle Brace proposed that she wanted to to explore the use of spoken word and aural stories during the Lockdown period. We were drawn to the simplicity of the idea.

Members of our Creative Collective (a group of people who inspire events to happen in their towns) chose an object they felt represented them. Their objects are the ones below, taking pride of place on our Mantelpiece.
