At Home was a series of workshops that creatively explore our relationship with the built structures that surround us, specifically, our domestic and everyday lived environment. This pilot project was based on the Hillock Estate in Whitefield, Greater Manchester.
The project was open to all, free to participate in and worked on a drop in basis, so participants were able to come and get involved when they could.
The workshops used maps, story sharing, walking, creative writing, photos (old), photos (new), urban myths and the sights and sounds of the estate.
The aim of the workshops was to establish and create a storytelling of the Hillock Estate using the history, lived experience and memory (collective and individual) of the people that live or have lived there.
Workshops ran weekly on Tuesdays through September and early October 2014 on the following dates, with an introductory session to find out more about the project kicking things off on Monday 1st September 7.30pm - 9.30pm.
