This event will showcase the work NHS at 70 has been doing during the development phase of the Heritage Lottery Funded project and celebrate the contributions of both volunteers and the people who have shared their stories through oral histories and community reporting in Greater Manchester and South Wales.
Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March
Drop-in, interactive performances will bring NHS stories to life. Devised and performed by Herizons creative women’s group, led by enJOY arts and singer-songwriter, Claire Mooney.
The videos below, which feature objects as varied as a powder folder, a bronzed wax resin cast of a facial reconstruction of Philip II of Macedon, a nest of three Royal Worcester white crucibles and a McEvedy rectal speculum (proctoscope), provide a fascinating insight into the project and the MMH’s collection:
Do you remember the workshop From Coal Mining to Data Mining we held in November? We are now inviting you to attend the opening of the exhibition associated with this project, of Nicola Dale‘s artwork inspired by historical arthritis research with coal miners as research subjects and by conversations with former miners.
