Carry On Stonehouse
Carry on Stonehouse was a celebration of the community of Stonehouse, reflecting on its fascinating history and exciting future.
Carry on Stonehouse was a celebration of the community of Stonehouse, with it's diverse population, reflecting it's fascinating history and exciting future and showcasing the area’s distinct contribution to the city of Plymouth in it's 100th year.
In 2014, Stonehouse Timebank approached Take A Part to lead on the project and Take A Part will be working with the Timebank and artists Anne Marie Culhane, Soraya Phillips, Joanna Hruby and Graham Guy Robinson to make a range of objects and capture stories which celebrate the community. Wishing stars carrying the wishes of local school children, ‘hopeful hearts’ which contain hopes for the community, a large scale ‘Janus’ Puppet will face the future and the past, seed and plant related stories and a series of other crafted and created and told objects will be made and heard in a series of workshops between now and November.
The whole process culminated in a beautiful parade of lights
along Union Street on the 1st of November as a part of the Three Towns
Festival being organised by Stonehouse Action Group.
Carry On Stonehouse has been made possible by funding from Awards For All.
