The Museum of Ordinary People (MOOP) is a pop-up museum that celebrates the ripples people leave behind, telling hidden stories using everyday objects, exploring and documenting everyday life.

This coming weekend, October the 17th and 18th, MOOP will be coming to Newhaven to stage an art walk called Reflections, telling extraordinary stories from the lives of people living in the town and beyond. Reflections goes on show as part of the Newhaven Festival.

Members of the public will be given an art map taking them on an open air trail through the town, past landmarks and shops. Along the trail they will encounter story tellers, shop front exhibits and displays in residents’ windows, which will provide a snapshot of unique lives and an insight into the history and heritage on their doorstep.

Meeching Woman’s Institute and Hillcrest Community Centre are some of the local organisations taking part in the project.

The trail, which starts outside The Bridge Inn at the bottom of High Street, will go along Meeching Road, South Road and Fort Road and residents in these roads are being invited to decorate their front windows and display exhibits that tell their own stories.

Lucy Malone, MOOP Co-founder explains, “We are really excited about the wealth of stories of that the people of Newhaven are bringing forward for Reflections.”

Reflections, Museum of Ordinary People, October 17/18th. 11.00am to 5.00pm
