Objects and Stories

Digital Artist, Michelle Brace invites residents in Brandon and Newmarket to visit their local library, to share their stories connected with treasured objects.

Visit the Objects and Stories exhibition at Newmarket Library until 20 August 2022 as part of Suffolk Libraries Let’s Get Creative project.

We’ve been working with Suffolk Libraries, artist Michelle Brace and residents in Brandon and Newmarket on a community project collecting the stories connected with objects that have special meaning in our lives; a special memory, a precious gift, an heirloom, something familiar.

Michelle chatted to residents, photographed their significant objects and recorded their stories. Displays have been created with local community groups to share the project with the wider community in the libraries. The photos and stories are also being shared on Instagram building a library of objects and stories for people to view and listen to online. You can also listen to these stories via SoundCloud here.

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.
