From Institution to Community

For the last year I have been working on a Heritage Lottery funded project recording the stories of people who lived and worked at Monyhull Hospital. I knew nothing about the place before I started, but it has been a fascinating project and has made me think about many aspects of life that I had never considered before.

Here’s the video we made:

We also produced a highly accessible magazine, that gives you quotes from oral history interviews in a way that tells the story enough to learn something, but if you want to read more, then you can on the tumblr blog.

Here’s the link to the blog, where there are written pieces, oral history recordings, pieces of video and images: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/frominstitutiontocommunity

I was really happy that Saba Salman who writes for The Guardian liked one of my pieces enough to put it on her website:

I will miss this project when it ends next month, but I am equally excited about getting onto something new.
