In the summer of 2022, StoryTrails toured libraries and public spaces across the UK, ending their tour in the borough of Lewisham. 


Emerging creative professionals, ‘StoryMappers’, were embedded in communities to research and collect stories, which were developed as immersive cinema, AR and VR installations and then taken back into these communities via a series of pop-up events. In September 2022, Catford Library was transformed for a unique experience that allowed local people to capture and experience their towns in completely new ways.


As part of the StoryTrails Legacy, a series of events will be taing place across Libraries in Lewisham, showcasing the technology and stories created, from mixed media art workshops to VR drop in sessions
