In association with Weston Museum, the Multicultural Friendship Association is organising an exhibition to celebrate its anniversary.
Given the current situation, no firm dates can be decided as yet, but if all is well it will happen in December – and we need your help!
The MFA (The Multicultural Friendship Association) hopes to use this event to highlight and reflect the wonderful diversity of Weston-super-Mare and its surrounding area. We would like as many different cultures as possible to be represented in stories, photographs and artefacts. We have already begun recording people’s memories on tape and these will be stored for future generations at the Records Office at Somerset Heritage Centre in Taunton. However, we would also love to display written records of your life stories and any objects or artefacts you might wish to lend us from your home country. If these could be accompanied by photographs and memorabilia, so much the better.
We promise to take great care of anything you lend us and all items will be kept secure in a locked cabinet. If you are willing to lend your artefacts the Weston museum will keep the items for up to 4 months.
