A retrospective look back at the 100 Project which, over the last three years has collected and explored the heritage of the Stonehouse area. Voted the national Community Heritage Group of the year in 2018, by the Community Archives and Heritage Group, the project has grown beyond all expectations. The event included a private view on 6th May and a closing event on 11th May featuring stories from the project. This spirit of collaboration has led to a partnership between 100 Homes volunteers, Walks with History, Artist Alan Norman, Plymouth LGBT Archive, Adelaide Street Artists, Imperfect Cinema, Plymouth Octopus Project’s Heritage Network, the Stonehouse Memories group and the planned Stonehouse Museum.
Which in turn has led to the formation of a new heritage alliance called Empowering Hidden Voices. This exhibition hosted the launch of this alliance and highlighted the works created already by these exciting groups while providing insights into the future developments for uncovering hidden voices in Plymouth. Over 350 people came and saw the Exhibition.
