Home from Home

The Home Correspondence was a huge success at Cambridge Folk Festival. We have nearly 100 recordings of people speaking their letters home- these will be compiled into an online archive in the next week or so (once I have the clever gadget that will convert old-school cassette to wizzy mp3s) and I shall pop the link to that here when its ready. This archive will grow with following contributions to the project in the future (we are already part of Parabola Arts Centre's Autumn Programme). We have hundreds of pins in our maps where people have marked their true home.

As ever, the audience at Cambridge Folk Fest were lovely and receptive to something a bit different in the programme and it was such a supportive environment to start something very exciting.

Thank you to everyone who contributed. Also, massive thanks to Anya Tavkar, Will Emsworth, Helen Preddy and James Owen - The Home Correspondents. I have never enjoyed camping meals and waiting for a kettle to boil more than with this lot. We certainly made a Home from Home.
