Hidden Stories: Hidden Places
Heritage Open Days Exeter and Falmouth
Hidden Stories: Hidden Places is an artist led project researching and gathering stories from the people buried in overlooked and often unknown Jewish cemeteries in Exeter and Falmouth. The project will culminate in a sharing of the stories for the Heritage Open days on September 10th. In Exeter the stories will be part of the open day in the Exeter synagogue between 11-3pm and in Falmouth they will be part of an audio trail in the Ponsharden Jewish and Dissenters Cemetery between 2-4pm.
Presentation at the Falmouth Poly
Prior to the Falmouth cemetery opening Ruth and Derek will be giving a presentation about the Hidden Stories: Hidden Places project at 12.30 in the Falmouth Poly. The event is free but there are limited spaces, to book your free place click here. Once the presentation is over there will be time to make your way to the Ponsharden Burial ground for the open day.
Hidden Stories: Hidden Places is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England , Exeter City Council small grants scheme and Feast Cornwall a programme that makes great art happen across Cornwall.
