Have you ever kept something significant to you forever?
What is the treasure in your home and story?

As the organiser of the upcoming Museum for a Day 2023 Event, I would like to invite you to share your story through an object that means a lot to you.
This event aims to create a vision of Bedford through its people’s stories and objects. It is a unique opportunity for you to share your stories behind an object you have cherished and never thrown away. Objects represent important moments, memories, and milestones in our lives. It is a chance for you to delve into your past, and reflect on the significance of these possessions and their historical importance.

The event will feature an open mic session where you can share your personal object story.
We encourage individuals from all walks of life to participate and inspire others with their stories of personal significance.
The diversity of stories shared will foster understanding, empathy, and a sense of unity within our community and thriving diversity of Bedford town.

Additionally, there will be a captivating display showcasing pictures of the objects and their accompanying stories that the people of Bedford have already kindly shared with me.
This exhibit will serve as a testament to the rich tapestry of experiences within our community and inspire others to reflect on the value of cherished possessions.
