STBY collected cultural and historical stories, to inspire the architects, designers and artists that were involved in creating Heartlands. In a workshop, together with storytellers and architects, designers and artists, we explored how Cornish stories could become an integral part of Heartlands, both in the built environment and artworks as well as in the virtual presence of Heartlands. The result was a film archive full of fascinating and sometimes touching stories and a number of inspiring ideas created by interaction between storytellers and designers on how to translate this colorful history into the designs and artworks.
