Group members have been using local history and art to consider present-day objects which have special meaning for us and our community.

Their ‘Treasure Boxes’ will form a Treasures and Relics exhibition planned by Lichfield Mysteries Community Arts.

Influenced by the concept of medieval reliquaries and Lichfield’s links with St Chad, the Treasure Boxes have been designed and made by participants belonging to The Pathway Project, Funclub and Lichfield & District Live at Home Scheme.

Kate Gomez, from Lichfield Discovered and artist Celia Houghton have been working with the groups.

This unique insight into people’s thoughts and ideas will be on view at Lichfield Library, The Friary, for 10 days from June 12th to 21st.

The exhibition in the Library Gallery is free and open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

One of the Treasure Boxes (pictured) was made by a member of Funclub, which is a youth provision for young people aged 10-16. Junior and seniors nights are run in Lichfield and Burntwood, providing a safe environment for young people to socialise, meet new friends and learn new skills - but foremost, to have fun.
