Exhibition: Sharing Local History on facebook

National Waterfront Museum
10–16 December 2018, 10am-5pm
Cost Free
Suitability All

Lots of people post memories and images of local events, places and people on facebook – but these rarely get into museums!

Come along and see some intriguing and moving scenes and events experienced within living memory in the local area. They provide fascinating glimpses into many facets of life in and around Swansea, produced by those who lived it. Each is just a thread in an ever-evolving web of shared and overlapping memories on facebook – providing a rich collective history different from the one usually told in local history books.

In this exhibition, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum of Wales and Cardiff University collaborate with local facebook groups and National Waterfront Museum to bring these invisible histories to light. You never know – you may find someone you recognise in these photos and stories!

We would love you to wander round and give us your feedback - and also share your own comments and memories.
