What is The Memory Box?
The Memory Box originated as a digital-inclusion project designed to give older residents of Newcastle the opportunity to learn how to use iPads within a non-threatening environment. The idea was to use the familiarity of one’s own recollections to bridge the gap between the more unfamiliar world of digital technology. Over a series of workshops, those taking part in the project created audio-visual stories which are now freely available here to the public as an online historical and learning resource.

The Memory Box was produced by Flo-culture in partnership with Newcastle City Libraries and Newcastle City Learning and has been financed by the Skills Funding Agency.
