Local Story Wakefield
An interactive resource celebrating community resilience and ideas for a greener future
We are researching and gathering content during Lockdown and over the subsequent months. Local Story has three elements to the project.
1. Stories about inspirational things people are doing to support their local community during Coronavirus
2. An interactive map and directory of Community Hubs providing local support and reacting to local need.
3. Exploring things people can do to address climate change and help improve the environment by making small changes in their lives.
Local Story is a creative mix of gathered and curated stories, artwork, films, and photography all capturing an important snapshot of Wakefield in 2020. The project is running and gathering content until March 2021 when it will become an online gallery and an important legacy of this time.
We were commissioned to create and produce Local Story for the Director of Public Health Wakefield, Anna Hartley’s Annual Report for 2020.
