Community

Our community projects in Cornwall work with hard to reach groups who face social, cultural or economic exclusion from the richness of media culture with a focus on improving the health and wellbeing of communities.

Community Stories Cornwall documenting stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary times!

Community Stories Cornwall is an oral history and visual project documenting the lives of Cornish communities during the pandemic.  Starting in the first lockdown this exhibition celebrates the incredible diversity of people experiences that can be found behind every door and on every street. By contributing to this shared history of the pandemic the project shows a different side to community life here in Cornwall creating important audio and visual records for future generations.

By contributing to this shared history of the pandemic, we hope to bring the community closer together and discover the incredible diversity of experiences and perspectives that can be found behind every door on every street.

We asked St Thomas Street in Penryn, a mixture of residential, social, private and multiple housing to contribute their stories and their thoughts on the theme ‘together’ during this time, selecting strong and diverse voices, each showing a different side to community life here in Cornwall.

 

We are celebrating the inclusion of Community Stories Cornwall into the Archives and Cornish Studies Service collections at Kresen Kernow, Cornwall Centre. Home to the world's largest collection of documents, books, maps and photographs related to Cornwall's history.
