At this time we are all having to dig deep in so many ways as our ‘normal’ morphs into something unrecognisable and our usual freedoms are curtailed. But we are hearing incredible tales of communities who are working together to support one another and of heart-warming gestures of kindness. In fact a lot of these stories reminded us of memories we’d recorded from the past, of looking out for neighbours, local delivery services, resourcefulness and little acts of kindness.
This is why Storylines, with funding from Feast, decided to set up its new project Kemeneth, which is Cornish for community, to provide an opportunity for connection through the sharing of personal stories about kindness, community and resourcefulness.
We invite you to share with us your memories and experiences of moments of kindness, community and resourcefulness. Big or small, past or present, we have no doubt that everyone will have something to contribute. There’s no right or wrong with this so please do feel free to let yourself go wherever your mind takes you.
Your story will be added to the online collection and might just brighten up someone's day and who knows what impact and inspiration it will gather on it’s journey into the wider world. We know that not everyone has digital access so another option is to phone us for a yarn on 07932950580. We are also looking at doing postal exchanges so get in touch if you’d like to receive and share your memories by post.
Although this is a challenging time, it is also an opportunity to reflect and reimagine how we engage with each other and the world. Now, more than ever, we need to celebrate and remember the positive ways that communities pull together, the resourcefulness that helps us find new ways and the acts of kindness that can transform our days.
Thanks for reading and we hope to hear from you.
