Director of Cornwall 365, Fiona Wotton, presents the findings of a research study involving six creative communities in Cornwall which explores the relationship between culture and community.
The project, which included Launceston and the Charles Causley Festival as one of its case studies, is helping to reveal the true value of creative activity to communities from tackling loneliness to cementing business relationships. Cornwall 365 runs the cultural tourism programme for Cornwall with funding from Arts Council England.
An exhibition of the Cornwall 365 project will be on show in the foyer of the Town Hall during the main part of the festival.
