The Residents Stories

Our Bigger Story is a multimedia evaluation which aims to record change in Big Local areas, and understand how those changes come about and how they can be sustained. Residents are telling their stories of change over a ten year period, through a range of media including animation and film.

Whitley Bay Carnival

Whitley Bay Big Local has supported the carnival for several years - with time and money. Resurrecting the carnival was something a lot of residents wanted to see and everyone is encouraged to participate. Lots of work goes into helping people think about how they want to be involved, making costumes, providing workshop space etc. This film of the carnival tells the story of why it is a significant local event and illustrates how fun events are so important.
