DEN Project

From De Sunshine to De Snow

 In 2009 members of the Memories Group and Nottingham City Museums and Galleries worked together on an oral history project called From de Sunshine to de Snow.
The project recorded the stories told by those who travelled from the Caribbean to Nottingham and who shaped and influenced Nottingham between the 1950s and 70s. 

The group created a travelling exhibition that was displayed at Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery for Black History Season 2009. 

Diversifying the Museum Service

We supported the Memories Group because we wanted to:
•  enable a group of individuals to gain ownership of their own project, widening participation within the museum service
•  create new opportunities for Nottingham people to learn about black history and its importance to the city.
