Storylines are delighted to share that we have received funding for the Kemeneth Project from FEAST and the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund. Kemeneth, which means community in Cornish, began in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, inspired by stories of communities pulling together. The project will correspond with people by post, phone and online to gather and share personal stories that explore and celebrate community, past and present.
Do you have memories of Sennen or the Clay Country you’d like to share?
Over autumn/winter 2020, Kemeneth will be focusing on gathering stories from two very different communities in Cornwall; Sennen near Lands End and the Clay Country. We will be delivering 100 story-sharing packs within each area to help people share their memories, experiences and reflections of their community. These packs are free and will help people contribute their memories and experiences, past and present, to two community books.
If you know someone who would like to receive a pack then please do get in touch so we can arrange this via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07767382552
Now, more than ever, we need to celebrate and remember the positive ways that communities can pull together and support each other.
