What’s your KWMC story?

In 2016 we’re marking the first 20 years of Knowle West Media Centre.  Over the next few months we’ll be holding a number of special events and exhibitions to celebrate everyone who has been part of the journey, reflect on what we’ve achieved together, and look forward to the next 20 years…

We’d love to hear your thoughts, memories and experiences of working with us.  We’re pulling together a collection of reflections – ’20 Stories for 20 Years’ – and we’d love to include yours.

We’ve noted some short questions below if you’d like to use them, but feel free to write, sing, rap or respond in a different way entirely!

1.  When did you first come to Knowle West Media Centre and what did you do?

2. How do you think KWMC has changed during the time you’ve known us?

3. Has KWMC made a difference to you? (If so, how?)

4. What other difference has KWMC made?

5. What are your favourite KWMC memories?

If you’d like to get involved, please send your responses to Rachel or drop in to KWMC.  The collection will be available on our website and may also appear in print; responses may be edited slightly for length.

If you’d like more details about our plans for 2016 please get in touch. Keep an eye on this page for more details too.

Dementia Awareness Week: 17 – 23 May

Dementia is something that 1 in 14 people over 65 experience at any one time, but it is also something that can affect people as young as 30. It can mean a big change in how you experience the world, it can have an impact on your relationships, and can affect your memory.

However, people can live well with dementia and there are things that you can do to support your friends and loved ones. Dementia Awareness Week is about promoting the things we can do to help people with dementia do the things that they love.

Here at KWMC there are lots of activities and events that are welcoming to people with dementia. Our MemoryScapes project can also take activities to care homes or day centres, or create bespoke memory boxes for groups. To find out more or to tell us about a care home or group that you think might be interested, please contact Lucinda or call 0117 903 0444.

#artvstech Round Two

Knowle West Media Centre will be putting Art and Tech head to head for a second time this half term.  Join us to create a collection of memories and bring your stories to life – digitally!

On Tuesday 27th May Ludic Rooms will join us again for a day of mapping, getting lost, and finding our way again. Help us to find the answers to questions like: “How many scooter lengths from Knowle West Children’s Centre to KWMC?” and create new ways of measuring Knowle West.

Work with artists Pippa and Fiona on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th May to find and design interesting objects triggered by memories. Use new materials to re-cast found objects, and use Fiona’s laser cutter to make your designs.

On Friday 30th May join the KWMC Young People’s Team to make a sound story or audio clip of your favourite memory. Use Google Maps to make a map of memories and bring it to life with your creativity through craft work, drawing and more.

The Young People’s Team will be on hand all week to help you create films and other digital records of the memories you collect. There will also be all the things you would expect from a week of KWMC activities: more Raspberry Pi’s, more Littlebits, more music, more photography…

  • All activities are free.
  • Knowle West Media Centre, 27th – 30th May 2014, 10am-3pm. Ages 10-19. Please bring a packed lunch.
  • To book your place call 0117 903 0444.
