On the weekend of the 9/10th of September ripple will be presenting their audio trail in the Ponsharden Burial Ground in Falmouth between 2-4pm. Prior to the cemetery opening we will be giving a talk about the wider project, called Hidden Stories: Hidden Places, at the Falmouth Poly at 12.30pm. There will be stories that are firmly rooted in Falmouth but ones that take us away from the county and ones that have strong connections across the eighteenth and nineteenth century Jewish communities across the south west of England. It is hoped that if you attend this free event you will get a rounder context to the audios and the background to the project as a whole; once the presentation is finished there will be time to make your way to the Ponsharden Burial ground for the open day. Hidden Stories: Hidden Places also includes audios in Exeter that will be accessed within the Exeter Synagogue also open on the 10th. Here you will be able to listen to stories that are pertinent to people buried in the Jewish cemetery at Bull Meadow plus there will be some short films to watch.
Hidden Stories: Hidden Places is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Exeter City Council’s small grants scheme and FEAST, a programme to make great art happen across Cornwall.
FEAST harnesses the talents and energy of Cornwall’s artists and communities, generating new opportunities for everyone to enjoy the arts. The focus is on bringing people together to share experiences as audiences or participants, and on animating local celebrations and cultural life.
