A series of workshops enable volunteers to create their own personalised postcard memories of a family day out using
images from the Medley collection or from photographs pertinent to them.
They will also have opportunities to record short video or audio messages, which will be accessible both online, via the
website, and through smart phones using QR code technology.
The first of these workshops have begun with help and support from staff and clients of the Poppy Centre in Liverpool, a social club run by Age Concern. A small selection of images from the collection were recently made available and used to help generate group discussions on the theme of a day out to the seaside.
A follow up visit has since collected individual stories. Conducted by second year Media Production students, this form part of a series of personalised post cards and accompanying DVD presentation. Many thanks to the following volunteers from the Poppy Centre and Kensington Fields Community Association
