Exhibition: You are here! The making of Ipswich
Have you ever wondered how your little piece of Ipswich fits into the story of this ancient town?
Or just where in Ipswich those treasures you see in the museum and mansion have come from? What’s on display here that might be from the area where you live?
We invite you to take a look at the fascinating story of how Ipswich has become the diverse town it is today by delving into the stored collections and pinpointing their stories on the map.
Find out more about the people who have lived in, passed through and shaped Ipswich since prehistoric times, whilst recalling memories, sharing stories and joining a conversation about our town's rich and vibrant past.
Call for images
The exhibition explores how Ipswich has become the town it is today and we need your photographs to help tell the story!
Your photos will show the diversity of Ipswich and the people who have lived in, worked in and passed through our town. Send your images, from any era, showing people in Ipswich. They can be of yourself, neighbours, colleagues, friends or family. It could be by a town landmark, in or outside a building, house, shop or street - perhaps even at places which aren't there anymore. We'll be creating a display of your photos in the exhibition, for visitors to enjoy and for you to spot yourself and others you might know.
Send your images to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st December 2017.
Also share your photos through social media with the hashtag #YouAreHere
