Help us tell the modern Birmingham story

By on 13/08/2010 in Culture, News

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is asking the public to help in exploring the history of Birmingham.

The first opportunity to do this in person will be at the Museum Collections Centre Open Day on Sunday August 22.

We want you to bring along your personal objects, stories and memorabilia which relate to your lives in Birmingham and Birmingham’s history from 1945 to the present day.

Tell us about your own experiences of living or working in Birmingham. Perhaps you have an object or story to share about Birmingham sport, music, fashion, shopping, schools, landmarks, hospitals, transport, faith, migration, politics or industry?

Your stories and objects will be documented and museum staff may later ask to borrow your object for the Your Birmingham gallery opening in autumn 2012.

There is also the opportunity to put your personal object online and tell the story about how it relates to your life in Birmingham or Birmingham History since 1945. Simply go to the Your Birmingham Flickr Group and add your images.
