Cornish Story is an initiative set up by the Institute of Cornish Studies with a vision to promote a greater knowledge of Cornwall and the Cornish Diaspora overseas.
Stories and films that have been collected by the Cornish Audio Visual Archive are combined with articles relating to all aspects of Cornish culture in the past and present.
Cornish Story is a digital platform for exploring the cultural heritage of Cornwall and its global diaspora. It seeks to harness the multimedia power of oral history, music, film and photography to interpret the past and present.
A key aim of the programme is to disseminate the rich resources of the Cornish Audio Visual Archive (CAVA) through themed website sections, an online magazine and related print publications.
By acting as a catalyst for further research and community engagement Cornish Story is also initiating new cultural and historical programmes linked to the Institute of Cornish Studies, University of Exeter at Tremough.
