Live & Local Living Room Project 
  
Harbury Village Library has been selected as one of 10 community groups in Warwickshire to participate in the Live and Local LivingRoom project. Live and Local is the organisation through which the Village Cinema is organised.


 The aim of the project is to get community groups engaged in an interactive creative project in response to the Coronavirus pandemic and for that activity to be available to more vulnerable residents, such as those who are socially isolated or shielding. 
  
We have been paired with Holly Daffurn of the Word Association in Worcestershire. Holly will take this opportunity to capture the voices and stories of people in our community as they experience lockdown. Participants could try their hand at writing up their own experiences as prose or poetry, or both. Holly has provided a description of her view of the project.

At the end of the project 100 physical copies of the book will be printed and distributed to the community. It is intended that this publication will not only capture the essence of the community and record the unique voices and experiences within it, but will also serve as a fascinating insight into the Covid-19 crisis and how people respond to it as a community and as individuals. 

The project timeline starts now (25th July, 2020) and is intended to run to the end of September.
