About Story Street:
Last autumn, artist Prue Thimbleby started meeting and talking to traders and business owners on Swansea High Street about what brought them to the area and how they’re finding it here. She captured what they said as digital stories – 2 minute long audio recordings, accompanied by still images. Sometimes funny, often moving, always enlightening, the stories reflect the energy and diversity of the High Street today and the hopes and aspirations of those who work here.
Story Street is part of From the Station to the Sea, one of seven innovative regeneration projects funded by the Arts Council of Wales under their Ideas:People:Places initiative. A partnership between Volcano Theatre and Coastal Housing Group, From the Station to the Sea is all about Swansea High Street – the idea of the High Street, the lived reality of the place, and the possibilities of its transformation.
