Old Market Diaries is the first project of IC Visual Lab. This project will take place around the Old Market Quarter area during the next 6 months. We would like to work with the community in order to produce an archive of local stories.

Old Market Diaries is a participatory project delivered by IC Visual Lab. Through a series of free workshops we’ll give local residents multimedia training that will enable them to use these new skills to record the life of the communityas it is now but also as it changes in the future.Old Market has been selected for this project as it’s one of Bristol’s fastest growing communities with residents originating from over forty different countries. Yet, Old Market, with its changing worlds and its connected histories, hasn’t ever had its stories told.

Via the interventions of the IC Visual Lab collective of photographers and local participants Old Market Diaries will act as a catalyst to construct an archive of personal and local histories that will enable and enhance greater community cohesion, both within the local community itself but also within greater Bristol as a whole.

We will be launching the project as part of the Community planning exhibition at Trinity organised by the Old Market Community Association. The exhibition will last until the end of April.
