The Memories are Stories project began with Stir a Memoryart and food memory events by Krina Patel. The popularity of the events, motivated her to collaborate with others to include memories on different themes from a wide range of people and places.

Memories help us make sense of our world.
 They are like fragments of a pattern. We stitch them together into stories to complete the pattern. In this way making sense of our experiences. Stories give meaning to our lives.

When we share our memories, we find our stories are often different yet similar.
 Our stories resonate. We connect.
