Objects of Our Affection

In March 2013 a group of adult carers began meeting at the museum on a weekly basis. Guided by experimental art group Arthur and Martha they began to look at the museum collection in terms of how the objects made them feel. The result was a remarkable ten week project in which the museum and its objects helped the carers to talk laugh and create artwork, poems and prose that revealed something of their lives and what it’s like to be a carer.
