We currently have two live creative briefs as part of our Eastern Cloisters Project. The Eastern Cloisters Project is funded by the The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

STORY NOOK

As part of the Eastern Cloisters Project at Hereford Cathedral, we are commissioning the building of a Story Nook. The Story Nook will house books and resources about the history of the Cloisters and the Vicars Choral, as well as a tablet loaded with recordings of oral history interviews. This Story Nook will tour several primary schools across the county, before returning to Hereford Cathedral. The aim of the piece is to impart two things to the children: that the Cloisters were a place of learning, and that the Cloisters were a place where people have always felt safe and at home.

DOLL'S HOUSE

As part of the Eastern Cloisters Project at Hereford Cathedral, we are commissioning the building of a Cloisters Dollhouse. The history of the Cloisters is a fascinating one, as they were home to Vicars Choral for centuries, and still house some of our staff today; they have been a home to members of the cathedral community for over 500 years, and that is what we want the Cloisters Dollhouse to communicate to visitors. We are aware that a cathedral can seem intimidating – to adults and children alike – and we want the Cloisters Dollhouse to represent the welcoming and less formal environment of the Cloisters.
