BY SARAH GISBOURNE:
For those who know me personally you will also know that I LOVE history. So I am looking forward to this brand new project that’s been launched in Andover.
Asking Andover is an exciting new project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in conjunction with Hampshire Cultural Trust, Chapel Arts Studios and Test Valley Arts Foundation.
Over the course of six months from March to August 2019, new and existing residents will be invited to come together through a series of events and community workshops to celebrate the rich and diverse heritage of Andover through personal memories and family artifacts.
A series of workshops and events will be held for the community to share their experiences and personal heritage working with a professional artist from Chapel Arts Studios and experts from Andover Museum.
Residents will also have the opportunity to develop new skills through free oral history, collections management and blog training sessions. Captured memories, stories, photographs and artefacts will form an exhibition co-curated with local residents, volunteers and community groups at the Museum.
