Local Story is an interactive archive created during Covid-19 by arts organisation One to One Development Trust as the Annual Report 2020 for Director of Public Health Anna Hartley.
Local Story was originally going to be produced as a film focusing on climate change and the environment with its implications for health and wellbeing.
Due to Covid-19 and the Lockdown in March 2020, the project was redefined to create a snapshot of the communities response to Covid-19. Local Story also explores our relationship with the environment and how individually we can all ‘do our bit’ to help address climate change making the world a healthier place to be.
The project will actively run for a year until March 2021 providing a valuable resource of local stories, gathering insights into community resilience and ideas for a greener, healthier future.
