We are planning to narrate four hundred stories (twenty stories from twenty different west coast communities) online through an interactive app and use it to encourage locals and visitors to explore the roads less travelled across our islands, peninsulas and coastline.
We want people to experience these stories for themselves and marvel at just how important the west coast has been in shaping so much across the World.
These stories will be selected from the memories and histories gathered through this website and will be a mix of well-known stories as well as much more quirky and intriguing tales.
We will have a selection process agreed for this and will ensure local people are part of this process. Those not selected will all be collated and held in our story bank and potentially used on social media and in related projects to really embellish the cultural understanding of the west coast.
As we ask for some personal information about yourself we ask you to tick a box to confirm you are happy for us to use your story and to reach out to you for any additional information we may need. We will contact you if your story is selected as one of our 20 for your area and also if we plan to use it on social media and in other projects. We won’t do anything with the information you provide without your knowledge and agreement.
Some of the most intriguing stories will become part of highly innovative and interactive exhibition material to be installed in key locations across the west coast. This part of the project will be developed in 2021 and we will provide much more information as this is progressed.
