Brandon and Newmarket


March, April 2022

Co-Creating a collection of everyday objects.

Residents in Brandon and Newmarket, using their local library, have taken part in a community heritage project curating stories all about objects that have special meaning in our lives; a special memory, a precious gift, an heirloom, something familiar.

Artist Michelle Brace recorded the stories and has created displays to be shared with the wider community in the libraries. There are photos and stories being shared on Instagram building a library of objects and stories that can be viewed and listened to online.

With thanks to the groups that have taken part in the project so far:



This project has been designed in collaboration with community members and Suffolk Libraries’ Let’s Get Creative project. Let’s Get Creative is a new web resource for everyone to use to find free and affordable activity across Suffolk.
