Who is Flo-culture?
Flo-culture is an arts and cultural organisation based in Gateshead in the North East of England. They are passionate about using the arts to create innovative approaches to learning.
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.
