Dr Rachel King's Story Garden entertained, challenged and moved residents in Canley

Dr Rachel Turner-King and a team of volunteers organised a pop-up Story Garden in Canley Community Centre, with four themed areas of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter representing different aspects of learning. She said:-

“We were thrilled with the turn-out. My aim was to welcome the public into a transformed space that brought the outdoors indoors! I also wanted to create a space that felt inviting, enchanting and beautiful.

“In the Summer garden we invited visitors to co-create stories by finding curious treasures hidden amongst the tree-trunks and branches and using these objects as prompts for creative writing. One young boy found some old keys, some shells and a spoon. We co-created a story about a prisoner who was washed up on a shore and had found 5 magic shells that would help him unlock the secret library in the castle. It was really impressive how quickly he took to storytelling in this way.

“I feel like we can really take this idea of a transportable Pop Up Story Garden to other venues around the city and it’s something we want to develop in the near future.”
