Aggie’s Christmas Spirit

Project: The university of the village: universities connecting with rural communities

Falmouth University ran a pilot outreach project with the community in the Cornish village of St Agnes. The project team gathered local people together in a village pub and brought the university to them – through the use of technology and super fast broadband. The content was co-designed with the participants who focused on learning skills related to film-making and editing. As part of the project, participants made a film about their village and village life – Aggie’s Christmas Spirit. This not only opened up university teaching to people within the village, but also lead to new collaborative working amongst those living and working within the community. This video includes interviews with community members and clips around Aggie’s Christmas Spirit.
