Titanic Stories: Contemporary Voices

In partnership with National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Storylines worked closely with five people who had moved from overseas and now live in Cornwall, to hear about their experiences and produce a series of digital stories. Alongside photographic portraits and personal objects, these digital stories featured in the Titanic Stories: Contemporary Voices exhibition at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Migration is entwined with people’s lives, making it a vast and complex theme. This exhibition provides a glimpse into the experiences of people who have made journeys to new lands to start new lives. The exhibition shows how the Titanic carried the hopes and dreams of hundreds of people seeking a better life and helps make a connection between these historic stories of migration and present day stories.

This project is part of Cornwall Museum Partnership’s Community Arts Project and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and Arts Council England through its Major Partner Museums programme.
