Libraries Live is a 3 county partnership project in 3 libraries, led by 3 artists in 3 different communities, across Warwickshire, Leicestershire & Staffordshire.
Artists in residence at 3 community managed libraries worked with library visitors, volunteers and the wider community to explore the theme of ‘change’ in libraries and the ethos behind communities working together.
Participants were encouraged to share stories about volunteering and about what libraries mean to them, what their aspirations are for the future and how libraries and communities can work together to achieve them.
This film shows the project in action and the outcome of the residencies in the form of commissions by artists Ruth Singer, Michaela McMillan and a performance for younger children by New Vic Theatre.
