Artist to visit Darwen Library to collect local people’s stories of Jubilee

Published Thursday 19 May 2022 at 16:37

Artist Thomas Daniel ‘Tom’ Byrne will be bringing his ‘Jubilation Station’ to Darwen Library!

On Monday 23rd May Tom will be encouraging customers to sit and talk, write or otherwise share their stories throughout the day as part of a project called ‘Jubilation’.

This will also take place with libraries all across the North West who are members of the Time to Read partnership.

The project aims to discover, celebrate and record the stories and achievements of local people/community members that have taken place during the reign of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Once regional submissions have closed at the end of June, Tom will gather together as many stories as possible from those submitted and edit them into a ‘Book of Jubilations’.

The book will be a collection of moments of celebration that reflects the lives of local people all over the North West.
Each of the 12 libraries that participated in the artist visit workshops will receive a physical copy of the book that can be added to their library’s collection. In addition to this, other libraries in the region will be able to access the book in eBook format.

Anyone interested in taking part should simply drop in to Darwen Library on Monday 23rd May between 11.30am and 4pm.
