Collections Chats began online in 2020 as a means of combatting isolation during the pandemic. As restrictions eased we started to deliver face to face Collection Chats at the Hall on the third Thursday of each month.
These sessions support people's health and wellbeing and provide a safe space for small groups of people to explore the Platt Hall collection together. Each session takes two of objects chosen by a participant from the collection as the starting point for shared and individual responses, reflections and experiences.
The conversations are scribed live and illustrated by artist, Laurie Pink. You can see Laurie's documentation of the conversations by clicking on the links below.
