Imagine: 100 Years of Housing in Bath

participatory projects

Imagine: 100 Years of Housing in Bath is commissioned by Creativity Works and Bath Record Office as part of a Wellcome-funded public engagement project creatively exploring housing and health impacts in Bath over the last 100 years. 

The project consists of a series of creative workshops with two community groups, Get Creative and Genesis Trust, running throughout Summer 2022 and culminating in a one day exhibition as part of Museum's Week in Bath in October. 

Through varied workshops exploring architectural drawing, map making, poetry, clay modelling and more the group will respond to archive material from Bath Record Office as well as their own lived experiences of housing and health to create their own archive boxes. The group's archive boxes will be archived themselves, bringing local voices previously unheard through the official records in to offer new perspectives and local knowledge around housing and health in Bath.
