1. Awareness Event
Sally Robertshaw (Project Manager) and Nita Newman (Community Heritage Worker) presented MADE’s Heritage Lottery Funded project ‘Everybody’s Story’ in November 2015.
The project aims and objectives were outlined and we offered the chance to get involved in the project in whatever way suited individuals who wanted to contribute. As a result of this awareness event we got in touch with a number of participants to wanted to share their story of Chances. We networked with people who wanted to work in the Smethwick Library archives on the lighthouse order books, conduct oral histories and share information.
We quickly learnt that Chance Glassworks was a much loved establishment and that the project could only become stronger as a result of our collective efforts to raise awareness of Chance Glassworks through our walks, workshops, talks, exhibitions and tours.
