Soundwaves: Oral History, Activism and Community Radio in St Ives

Soundwaves is a weekend of conversations and creation that will discuss community heritage, legacy and oral history, sound art and community radio. How do narratives of the past relate to communities today?  How can these stories be used to create a vision for future communities?

This event  is a part of the Connected Communities Festival and will bring people together at Porthmeor Studios, St Ives, on Saturday and Sunday 27 and 28 June, for a weekend of discussion with invited speakers and opportunities to have hands on experience using oral history to make a short radio broadcast.

Soundwaves aims to connect communities from the past with those in the present through story and voice, to create alternative narratives of place, highlighting current concerns and framing future actions.

The event is free and includes lunch on each day and refreshments. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements – email
