Can you help keep Firstsite fantastic, fun and free?

The impact of shutting Firstsite has been huge for us and the communities we work with, which is why we are reaching out to you to help us.

Whatever you can give today can help us continue our work, collaborate with more communities and find creative solutions to the world we find in front of us.

My object for the project #TellMeTheStory 31st March 2020

Amy

#Tellmethestory

“I was given this shell as a child and have kept it with me ever since. It resembles the wonderful sensory experience of my favourite place, the beach; the smell of the sea, the sound of the waves, the feel of the sand, the taste of the sea air and looking out towards the horizon.”

Shared as part of the exhibition, ‘Tell be the story of all these things‘. The exhibition title is inspired by Rehana Zaman’s 2016 film Tell me the story of all these things (included in the exhibition), which revolves around a conversation between the artist and her two sisters as they prepare a meal.
