Saturday, 25 September 2010 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

The exciting new Imagining Here project launched on the 25th September at Sutton Scotney Victoria Hall. As well as introducing the project the event featured artefacts and information presented by Graham Scobie of the Historic Resources Centre and a video on life in Winchester 50 years ago which offers a rare view of our near past produced by David Lee from the Wessex Sound and Film archive.

The Imagining Here project will explore questions about the links between our past and future and how we can use these as we tackle climate change with three communities in Winchester District: Sutton Scotney, South Wonston, and Weeke. Local people will discover their past through objects, archival sources and oral history, and work with artists to creatively explore what we can take from the past to create the communities we want in 50 years.
