Stories to Share, an oral history project funded by Awards For All, features the voices of local people sharing their anecdotes and experiences.
The individuals featured here also produced the material, recording one another at free community workshops which took place during the Spring and Summer 09, in the Totnes area. Participants were asked to bring along an item of nostalgic value, tell their life stories and make short radio features, some of which can be heard in the audio samples on this page.
It was a wonderful afternoon. The welcome I got was so warm and encouraging. I have not felt supported in expressing my creativity so much since......ever!. Thank you.
Stories to Share was broadcast in September 2009 as a continuous 4 day long looped sound installation. We asked listeners, "Why not have it on in the background for a while and share your space with people you may never meet?"
