Welcome to the Memory of Clothes Podcast

Memory of Clothes explores the narratives and stories found in artifacts in Worthing Museum. We talk to elderly residents of Worthing who share their thoughts and reminiscences on the stories belonging to things and places.

We speak to a range of specialists about memory, displaced items and stuff, and we follow artist Helen Barff as she develops work for her exhibition in response to things found along the way.
