Cornish heritage project success for museums and schools partnership
A new partnership outreach project has brought local history to life for schools and museums across Cornwall.
Cornish Voices explores and celebrates the Cornish people's enduring relationship with the sea. Developed by National Maritime Museum Cornwall, the project is based around specially commissioned actor-led performances which are delivered in partnership with smaller museums, galleries and heritage centres across Cornwall.
To date over 600 students and 12 schools have taken part in the living history project, described by teachers as an "invaluable learning experience". Schools involved range from St Martyn-in-Maneage and Stratton, Newlyn to Nansloe, covering an area from Penzance to Bude.
A teacher from Newlyn School said: 'This experience had far more value than watching a television programme, it brought the artefacts and stories to life in a way that made this an unforgettable experience for the children.'
