The initial stages of the project saw young people recording oral histories
from those who attended the Young Men’s Christian Association; they engaged
with their elders to gain an insight into the recent past and looked at ways
this can help shape the future. This became the inspiration for the final stage
of the project. A final piece has been created which is a collaboration
between Howgill Arts, Zoe Crossan & Hannah Reid at Fab Lab, Cockermouth and
Joiner, Alan Hawkins. The final piece, which is a mixture of traditional
and modern construction techniques, will be on permanent display in the Foyer.
