Lost Letters was our flagship heritage project with Surrey History Centre to bring local history to life through creative responses to letters.
The project had been envisaged as a live experience and tour with four local partners but Covid meant we took a different path. We provided a series of online creative challenges that anyone could freely engage with and had responses from all over the world.
We set up an online programme for residents and volunteers at the Royal Star & Garter care home to engage with Lost Letters which was well received and allowed residents to connect beyond the four rooms of their room with the support of volunteers and artists:
"Taking part in this project helped me deal with the claustrophobia of Covid and meant the four walls of my room opened up and fell away.”
We delivered creative challenges as well as live and online workshops with a range of partners including The Halow Project, the West London Mental Health Trust, Rocket Artists, Anstee Bridge PRU, Hinchley Wood Secondary School and 64 Million Artists.
This project was funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
