Remembering Remembrance

Posted by Tenby Museum on May 11, 2018 Blog No Comments

As part of the Be Kind Haverfordwest event running between 13th and 26th May for those living with dementia, their families, finds and careers, Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is running an event at the Picton Centre on Monday 14 May.

Remembering Remembrance will see the museum’s curator, Mark Lewis (a Dementia Friend) holding two handling sessions based around items from the reserve collection that have specific resonance with WWII.  The project is also part of the Haverfordwest Year of Remembrance.
Mark said, “I will be using objects, images and music to not only inspire memory but also to encourage new learning.  This is the first time I have undertaken anything like this but hope that it works out well and that we can continue to undertake such projects within the community.  Museum’s can play an important part on well-being and this is the first step towards Tenby Museum actively taking their collection out into the community to improve people’s health and well-being. I am excited about the project, even if a little tentative!”

The event is open to all and runs between 1pm and 2pm and 3pm and 4pm.  The sessions will be small and so booking is essential.  Places can be booked through the museum email or by telephoning 01834 842809.
