Open Group

An open group recruited from across Salisbury worked with Stephanie Jalland, Artistic Director of Hoodwink, to delve into the archives.

 

Using theatre techniques they created archives of their own lives to add to the collection.  They  considered the meaning of an archive and decided what objects and memories they would like to leave behind for future visitors to share.

Young Carers

Young carers from across Wiltshire collaborated with animation artists from City Eye.  They focussed on the Cathedral’s large collection of glass plate negatives and photographs as well as illuminated books. They responded by making a series of short stop-frame animations which fit together to make a short film, which you can see below.

 

This project has made me feel more interested in archives and local history.Young participant

Sarum Academy

Year 9 Students from Sarum Academy worked with musicians from SoCo Music Project to explore how memories can influence music and how music can become an archive in its own right. The compositions of the students recordings will be stored in the archive.

Animating the Archives allowed a range of community groups to explore the incredible collection of materials held in the Cathedral's archive and medieval library and then respond to them through the arts. The videos on this page document the creative journeys of each group.

Wiltshire College

Foundation Diploma Art and Design Students from Wiltshire College worked with artist Henny Burnett to explore visual responses to the hidden mysteries and secrets found in the Cathedral’s archive.

 

They created an exhibition of artwork that was showcased during Salisbury Festival 2017 under the title Beyond the Archives.

Older people with dementia and carers

Older people living with dementia and their carers created dance and movement inspired by the archives under the guidance of dance artist Rebecca Seymour.

 

Participants learned about the archive through photos, pieces of parchment, quills, chorister’s maths books and some of the oldest books in the collection.  After looking at these artefacts the group then responded creatively using movement and music, particularly relevant songs and hymns.
