Strawberry Line Co-Creation Session 1

Free event on Friday, 5th July 6-8pm

Old School Rooms (St Congar’s)

Following a first successful research meeting with members of the Congresbury History Group in February 2024, Bristol-based artist and filmmaker Simone Einfalt is now organising a first Community Co-Creation Session with the wider group and interested residents of all backgrounds and ages.

She will create a new body of work (a site-specific exhibition) using documentary and art mediums such as film, sculpture and sound installation to represent and interpret the Strawberry Line area and Congresbury’s heritage. The project is due to be presented in a local venue early next year.

Therefore, we are collecting past and present stories of the Strawberry Line, the historic railway, St Congar, the Somerset Levels, Floods as well as family heritage, local traditions, myths and folk song. This list of themes is not exhaustive so please consider contributing your story if you have something interesting to share.

  • This will be a Drop-in session (arrive at any time and share your story).
  • We are collecting your stories as notes, audio recording or on video, you are warmly invited to share in the format you feel most comfortable with.
  • Everyone welcome!
