Cornwall College students help capture Heartlands in pictures
Every stage of Heartlands' development is being documented on camera by students from Cornwall College, Camborne.
The photography students will be making regular visits to the site to document each stage in the £35million project. Before work officially gets underway, the students have been busy capturing the site, documenting and archiving the historic buildings before the site is cleared and prepared in preparation for building work in the summer this year.
The pictures will be an inspirational resource not only for artists and designers working at Heartlands, but also for the community, including educational and community organisations. Heartlands social archive has been created to raise awareness about Cornwall's cultural heritage, as well as recognising and celebrating its achievements and aims to offer insight through learning from the material culture of this historic World Heritage Gateway.
The Cornwall College students that are photographing the site are studying for the Foundation degree in Animation and Foundation degree in Multimedia Design. Stephen Howard, Head of Multi Media and Animation at Cornwall College said "We are delighted to be able to work with Heartlands, the students are enjoying being involved in an exciting live project right on their door step and gaining valuable work experience too".
