This 10 week activity was facilitated by Peter Grech and Janet Ingle in the spring of 2008.  Peter and Janet asked participants to bring in photographs of celebrations in their lives, such as weddings.  One participant brought in a photograph of her son's passing out parade. Janet produced a timeline to help the particpants to date their memories. Discussions of the memories filled the first half of the activity sessions.  Then the participants were filmed discussing their memories of the photographs.

Peter will be producing a film of everyone's memories and including their photographs.  Clips of the film will be put on the website.

Thanks to volunteers Peter and Janet for facilitating the workshop.
