Chatteris in Myth and Memory

The tent is transformed into a library where old stories are revisited; new stories begin and a large collection of broken and unwanted books become the materials and inspiration for the making of individual artwork.

During the afternoon children from local primary schools  are invited to visit the library and work with visual artists from Rojo Art and Joseph Coelho, a writer who always seeks new stories behind those ‘Happy ever afters’.

The children revisit local myths and memories with local storytellers and poets and prepare performances for later in the day. With the visual artists, the threads of these stories twist with a pile of forgotten books making new stories from old.
