Heritage Open Days 2014: Primary Memory

  • 11 — 13 September 2014

PRIMARY is an arts venue located in the former Douglas Primary School building in Nottingham. This Grade II listed building is now home to thirty artists and artist groups, as well as writers, designers and bakers. PRIMARY MEMORY is an ongoing archive of interviews about the history of the former Douglas Primary School, gathered by writer, performance maker and Primary resident, Michael Pinchbeck. The project began when Michael interviewed his mum, Vivienne Pinchbeck, and Carole Forsythe who worked in the nursery and infant schools and the former Deputy Headmaster Peter Wilson. During the summer the project is expanding to collect more stories from people who worked or studied at the school. In September, the interviews will form an audio installation, to be played throughout the building as part of Heritage Open Days.
