The Memories Project

The Memories Project with artist Elaine Mears

"If you could keep only one object that has sentimental value to you, what would you keep, and why?"

Artist Elaine Mears is inviting you to share your story. Elaine will be gathering all the stories and combining them to create a piece of art which will include representations of the precious objects, recordings of stories, smells, and blended materials which will combine to bring all the memories together in one place.

If you would like to share your story, you can contact Elaine on 087 2339938 or You can write to Elaine at Elaine Mears, The Linenhall Arts Centre, Linenhall Street, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.

Elaine is a theatre maker, designer and visual artist who has also worked extensively in community development and human rights. She is the Associate Artist with the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar this year. A lot of her work is grounded in reminiscent art practices.

This project is supported by Mayo County Council Arts Service and Creative Ireland.
