‘Traces of Place’ workshop

Olivia Keith & Jocelyn Cunningham

Location: Final Whistle Café (Preston)
Year: 2017

As part of her research for The Expanded City project, Olivia Keith undertook a two-week residency at the Final Whistle Café in Cottam, collating memories and contributions from local people. A workshop event presented a discussion about the meaning of ‘home’, hosted by Jocelyn Cunningham, Director of Lancaster Arts, considering questions such as: What makes you feel at home in a new place? What helps you to put down roots and feel connected to the environment? The event generated a response of “huge diversity rather than a consensus of feeling about home and home-making and the very ambiguity of the word ‘home’.
