Memories Brought Home
About the Project
Memories Brought Home (MBH) is a National Lottery Heritage Fund & Wessex Heritage Trust project which aims to improve well-being by connecting people to their local heritage.
Starting in March 2019 the project is running for 15 months and will result in a touring exhibition. The team is working with heritage partners across Hampshire to run activities and workshops, giving local people who are experiencing social isolation and loneliness the opportunity to meet new people, learn about the history of their local area and reconnect with their community.
Memories Brought Home is covering the whole of Hampshire, with four main starting hubs in the East and West of the county. Here the first sessions will be run in the New Forest, Romsey, Petersfield and Portchester, with our partner heritage sites Mottisfont House, The New Forest Heritage Centre Museum, Petersfield Museum and Fort Nelson.
From Monday 18th - Friday 22nd May 2020 MBH held an online exhibition with live Q&A on our Facebook and YouTube channel. The exhibition of this 15 month research project is still available to view via the links below. The exhibition has had over 1,500 views across all media platforms.
Memories Brought Home courses have now ended.
We would like to thank all the heritage sites for partnering with MBH; Fort Nelson, Butser Ancient Farm, Stanstead House, Chawton House, The Watercress Line, Mottisfont House, King Johns House, Monkton Arts, The New Forest Heritage Centre and Petersfield Physics Gardens.
