A growing archive of personal stories connected to social, environmental and industrial change.

[VOICEOVER] has been developed by Corners in collaboration with local community groups and individuals. In a series of mapping workshops and live radio broadcasts Myers, Kolendo and Mucko have gathered and recorded personal stories of social, environmental and industrial change: a child’s tale of seeing the smoke from a factory in Taranto; the memory of an abandoned beach in Brindisi; the description of a nightshift in a Middlesbrough steel plant; dancing in a social club in Ashington… Conversations, readings, music and field recordings present an assemblage of fragments that are specific and universal. Stories are shared locally, and, via the radio, connections are made to the other localities, and vice versa. In this way a vivid portrait of each location is created and shared narratives discovered.
