To mark the 375th anniversary of Sacred Trinity Church, we ran a programme of activities during May and June 2010, with the intention of producing an exhibition to celebrate and share people’s memories and associations with the church.
Artist Rebecca McKnight worked alongside Julie Spellman from local community multimedia organisation “People’s Voice Media” to deliver training sessions over 5 weeks. These sessions were attended by 14 members of the local community comprising local unemployed and retired people, post-graduate students from The University of Salford and volunteers from the church. During the training, the participants learned how to conduct interviews, and make audio and visual recordings, thus enabling them to become “community reporters”, and document stories and memories of the church’s recent, and not so recent past.
Below is one of the videos from the exhibition. You can see some more of the exhibition content by holding your mouse over “Projects” and clicking on either the “Videos from the exhibition”, or “Stories from the exhibition” links.
