We are delighted to announce our latest project 'DiaspAURA' - a site-specific celebration of creativity, community and heritage.
To accompany the restoration of St Day's
Old Church, we will be holding an exciting programme of free creative activities and events.
Keep an eye on our website and social media for updates and opportunities to get involved!
DiaspAURA - the name comes from 'diaspora', meaning "the movement, migration, or scattering of a people away from an established or ancestral homeland".
The project celebrates the Old Church's connection with the world-wide Cornish diaspora, and we'll be creating an 'aura' through the dazzing light festival!
