CDEC has extended the reach of its big-hearted Hidden Stories Shared Lives project to reach even more of our Cumbrian community, thanks to additional funding.
Support from the Big Lottery Fund and Cumbria County Council is enabling CDEC to tour the exhibition and workshop to even more Cumbria’s towns, villages and schools.
Exhibition tours Cumbria
Since June, Hidden Stories – Extending the Conversation has opened up its exhibition and workshop to communities in Kendal, Grange-over-Sands, Millom, Whitehaven and Cross Cannonby near Maryport.
The exhibition and workshop will also be visiting Barrow-in-Furness, Cockermouth, Carlisle and Silloth in the next few months, so keep an eye out for your opportunity to see the exhibition and take part in the workshop.
Workshops explore our own stories
The workshop explores themes of ‘belonging’, what ‘home’ means to us, and how we perceive people from other places. It challenges preconceived notions of migrants and brings interest and understanding of people from different places. Participants, including school children, also learn the value of their own journey and their own stories.
