Journeys to Cheshire

6th July @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This event is an opportunity to learn more about two projects which are sharing stories of people crossing borders and building new lives in Cheshire and across the North West.

Daniel Edmonds of Cheshire Archives will introduce the Journeying to Cheshire project launched by the archives in partnership with Cheshire Halton and Warrington Racial Equality Centre (CHAWREC). They are working together to produce a series of oral histories with members of new and emerging communities across Cheshire, creating resources for researchers and public display boards.

Heather Swainston, Project Worker for Cheshire at Migration Stories NorthWest, will talk through some of the choices and stories that went into the display, which can be visited through the course of the Festival of Ideas.

If you want to learn more about why people have made Cheshire their home, and to hear about their experiences, then please join us for this discussion.

Both these projects have been made possible with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Booking for this event will open early in May.
