Doorstep Diaries MK
DOORSTEP DIARIES MK IS COMING TO MK GALLERY!!
What is Doorstep Diaries MK?
During Lockdown we have been running Doorstep Diaries MK. The project was an open call to households across Milton Keynes to have their photograph taken on their doorstep, free of charge, during the national lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It set out to celebrate the community and share moments of positivity during a time of widespread uncertainty and challenge.
The response to the project has been phenomenal and we have captured and shared hundreds of positive moments. It has been an absolute pleasure to meet everyone who has taken part and to share a positive lockdown experience.
We loved the doorstep photos Stacey took of our family. She had some lovely ideas for photos to take that have created some lovely lockdown memories
Exhibiting at MK gallery 2021
We are fortunate to be exhibiting the Doorstep Diaries MK project in MK Gallery 8th Jan - 21st Feb 2021.
Featured in this exhibition are a series of images which show natural and authentic moments in the community. Shared smiles and laughter highlight genuine connections and togetherness.
Many of the photographs will be displayed on reclaimed wood from Milton Keynes in the shape of houses and all of the suppliers we have worked with are local businesses in Milton Keynes.
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The exhibition also features a compilation of filmed interviews with Milton Keynes residents. The interviews are part of "Lockdown Lives MK," an ongoing project by Living Archive MK designed to document the lives and experiences of citizens during the lockdown and beyond.
Living Archive MK is a charity which collects, preserves and shares the history and heritage of Milton Keynes.
