Supported by Norfolk Record Office and mental health professionals, so far 2 groups of 16 people have followed the same process in successive years. In Term 1 participants research someone encountered in the Case Books, track them online through census records in their local library and visit Norwich Castle Study Centre. Term 2 explores history and identity in creative workshops at Belfry Arts Centre, Overstrand or Oddfellows Hall, Sheringham. In Term 3, trained by Norfolk Sound Archive, participants make an oral history and web archive of their research and visit Gressenhall Museum. Finally both cohorts come together to create exhibitions at The Forum Norwich, Norfolk Record Office, Oddfellows Hall and online. A House of Commons reception hosted by our Patron, Norman Lamb MP, celebrates people’s achievements. Our digital outputs remain online, for everyone.
In 2018 a new group will complete the Change Minds project at Norwich Millennium Library.
A partnership between the Restoration Trust, Norfolk Record Office and Together for Mental Wellbeing, and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Change Minds runs from June 2015 until December 2017.
