Land of the Fanns: 100 Stories
Land of the Fanns was a complex community mapping project to identify and gather 100 stories from across the area to highlight its treasures.
In workshops and via remote sessions, local people and community groups were invited to share their local tales, which were curated with reference to the different ‘Landscape Character Areas’ within the Land of the Fanns.
Restrictions imposed by Covid-19 meant our usual delivery style was adapted, so participants were supported to design the resulting flags remotely. Social distancing rules meant smaller groups than usual were allowed into the studio for the silk painting, but the end results did not disappoint. All final 100 flags were displayed at Thames Chase Forest Centre in August 2020.
A walking festival featuring some of the stories, called Tales of the Fanns, took place May/ June 2021.
