Wick Voices

In 2016 Wick Voices, the Wick Society's Oral History Section, embarked on an ambitious, long-term project aimed at collecting and preserving memories and information from the past. This will be social history in its most natural form - as told by the people who have lived it. 

Wick Voices is a truly intergenerational project working closely with school pupils and older family members. 

Wick Voices is looking for people who are willing to tell their own stories, tell someone else's story, reminisce about life experiences and describe times and artefacts from previous eras.
