Over several months in 2020 community storytelling company, take stock exchange (TSX) spent time with people all over Barnet. In Zoom rooms and on WhatsApp, people from across the local community had conversations and shared their stories with one another. TSX created a special podcast series to share some of the stories and conversations that they gathered.
From isolating experiences of lockdown, to stories of neighbourhoods coming together, to dreams for the future (including one about eating a strawberry cake), the conversations focused on the way in which people in the communities of Barnet care for and support one another.
TSX created and delivered this project in collaboration with artsdepot. It was funded through Here and Now, which was led by Future Arts Centres and supported by Arts Council England, marking the National Lottery’s 25th birthday. Read more about Here and Now.
