How do you bring archive materials, 120 school children, 50 adults, a storyteller, an artist and an archaeologist together in one project? The answer is FOOD!
Performer and storyteller Nicky Rafferty and visual artist Clare Taylor delved into Nottinghamshire Archives with the help of archeologist James Wright. Inspired and armed with the unearthed artifacts, they worked with pupils from Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy and Greenwood Primary School and members of the public through library workshops, to produce a new collection of work. Here's how it was achieved:
These were shared in an exhibition in Inspire Library Galleries between April and December 2019 along with works the artists produced with the schools.
All the contributions will be added back into Nottinghamshire Archives for future food historians to uncover.
The Gallery below shows some of the results!
Nottinghamshire Archives is a fabulous resource open to the public and holding over 4 million documents waiting to be discovered.
