Poet and writer Clare Best (view Clare's blog here) and film maker Tim Andrews met through the Ethics in Performance series at Brighton and Sussex Medical School a few years ago. Both felt they wanted to collaborate on a project of their own.

Clare explains that Take Me With You: the museum of friendship, remembrance and loss began with this question: 'If each of us could choose 21 things to take with us to the next world, what would these 21 things be?’

Over a period of nearly three years, Tim and Clare emailed each other with their choices and the reasons for them – a dialogue about memory and mortality that led them into friendship.

Both Tim and Clare have faced serious and life-changing health issues in recent years and their project will speak to anyone who has been forced to face their own mortality. Expect to laugh, cry and maybe sing along.
