Working with a number of archives and collections in the Eastern Region the project aims to present the idea of an entry point for exploring and utilising the collections. He is working in partnership with The Museum of East Anglian Life (MEAL) Suffolk, Carrow House – Norwich, Norwich Castle Museum, Suffolk County Council Archives and Norwich University College of the Creative Arts (NUCA).
