Weddings, Holidays, Parties And The Bits In-Between is an exhibition being delivered by Ampersand Projects as part of the Living Memory Project.The exhibition consists of personal family photographs of Black Country residents, revealing the social and private history of the area.
Ampersand Projects has been meeting and talking to people about their family albums and the lives and stories that they contain, images drawn from across the last century, still resonate because the experiences they contain are at once special and unique moments in time, but also everyday and universal.
The exhibition will be on view at Bleakhouse and Thimblemill Libraries as follows:
- Bleakhouse Library – 6th August 2019 till 1st September 2019
- Thimblemill Library – 2nd September 2019 till 1st October 2019

In our increasingly digital world, there is less place for the physical nature of a photo album and they are becoming less of a tradition in people’s homes. This exhibition celebrates the format of family albums, the way they collect our memories together and their ability to connect us with our past and remind us of loved ones, special occasions and times gone by.
