Sleep Stories in the Reading Room

Explore the digital quilt.

Running alongside our 'States of Mind' exhibition, this project was a way to record and share people’s stories of what happens when they're asleep. We collected the stories and the best ones were sewn into a quilt by our visitors. You can get a sense of the process in the gallery below. We have also kept a record of the stories for our archive.

Once completed and photographed, the quilt was donated to St Mungo's. The digital version of the quilt acts as both a legacy of this project, as well as a way for people to explore the beautiful contributions our visitors have made whilst getting a sense of the range of sleep experiences we gathered.
