Bulwell Scrapbook Stories
For six weeks in January and February 2019, residents of Mariner Court and Duchess Gardens worked with Artist Hannah Sawtell and Poet Leanne Moden to share their stories. Below you will see a range of activities including drawing, calligraphy, paper-cut making, design, and creative writing, using memories on themes of home, work, place, fashion and entertainment in order to create some wonderful artworks, poetry and prose.
This work produced is a fascinating glimpse into the social history of Bulwell, as well as a timely reminder that all stories are valid and meaningful. The Bulwell Scrapbook Stories project was a joint project by Nottingham City Homes, Creative Nottingham North, Rebalancing the Outer Estates Foundations and the Bulwell Arts Festival.
Cathy Mahmood, Nicola Curzon and Goran Selby organised the project but the biggest thank you's go to Artist Hannah Sawtell and Poet Leanne Moden for pulling all these wonderful pieces together and of course to the residents of Duchess Gardens and Mariner Court for sharing their stories, memories and creativity.
Thank you to all involved at Duchess gardens and Mariner Court:
Hillarie Dobbine, Barbara Bentonite, Sadie Bennett, Carole Exard, James Johnstone, Christine Anne Millar, Pam Hicklines, Gillian Simon, Mary Appleby and Kath Viggers.
