900 Voices of the Nene
900 Voices is a digital arts/archive projected funded through Heritage Lottery and delivered by One to One Development Trust for Nenescape
We created an online archive that brings together information and resources about the River Nene between Peterborough and Northampton.
Through community workshops and live events at festival we ran a comprehensive engagement programme gathering the content for the archive and creating a series of short films.
The archive was ‘made live’ in December 2018, launched with a spectacular digital art installation as a response to the project. 900 Voices gathered and produced stories, images, music, poems, and films that relate to the River Nene. The aim was to create a ‘snapshot’ of what the River Nene means to people who live and work around it at this time in history.
Nenescape Landscape Partnership Scheme is a partnership of organisations working together to raise the profile of the Nene Valley and has received Heritage Lottery funding for a five-year project. 900 Voices is one of the Nenescape projects and came about as part of Peterborough Celebrates 900, a significant anniversary for the Cathedral.
The project ran from January - December 2018
