Hidden Stories Shared Lives exhibition

Loan our Hidden Stories exhibition and gain an insight into the journeys and challenges of those who now live in Cumbria but were born outside the county.

The exhibition stems from an oral history project (find out more at www.hidden-stories.co.uk) that looked at migration to Cumbria. It explores the stories and reasons that led people to leave their places of birth and arrive here, how their outlook has been shaped by their own personal stories and how we are all diverse, strong individuals.

The five information boards are accompanied by audio clips of some of these interviews on CDs. The Everyday Lives part of the exhibition delves into how some of those interviewed relate both to their country of birth and their new home in their daily lives.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to loan either part of the exhibition.
