Penwith College Students learning to record oral histories

In June the project worked with Year 1 students from Penwith College Lens Based Media Diploma to record four new oral history interviews with people who have stories tell about Jubilee Pool. The students edited the recordings into concise, anecdotal soundbites to be animated by BA Animation students at Falmouth University in a new, collaborative partnership. Look out for animated short oral histories when our Jubilee Pool Stories website comes online next year. Our thanks to the members of Jubilee Pool Research Group and ‘Friends of Jubilee Pool’ who were interviewed.

In addition to the work with Penwith College in June, the project has recently recorded Evangeline, now in her nineties, who attended pool’s opening day in 1935. We have lots more plans to record stories and memories from further interviewees. If you, or someone you know has interesting memories of Jubilee Pool, please contact us on florence@awen.org.uk.
