Stories From Our Streets Community Activity Pack


The Stories From Our Streets project is creating a story map to celebrate the voices of our diverse communities across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. 

We need your help! We want to hear from everyone – a story from every postcode – to learn what you love about the area, the people, and what makes home ‘Home’.

Stories are at the heart of community and culture.  

Every voice matters. Every story matters. We want to hear yours.

There are many ways to be part of this free project for everyone of every age – and you don’t need to be a writer or ‘good at writing’ to take part.

You can download the Community Activity Pack following the link above and choose one or all of the activities - or simply share a moment or memory of BCP. See the back page of the pack to enter our competition, too. We look forward to seeing what you create! 

How To Share Your Stories

Share your story/completed sheet with us in ONE of the following ways. 

Remember to include your name (optional) and full postcode or half postcode and area eg BH5, Pokesdown (this helps us ensure we have everywhere covered on our map!). 

If you attended a session/event with us, please tell us when and where. Send us your story:

1. Email it to stories@artfulscribe.co.uk 
2. Drop a paper copy to your local BCP library - label it for Stories From Our Streets.
3. Upload it to our Jotform.

To be part of the map send us your story by 30th September 2023. 

Share memories, moments & any accompanying photos or images on social media. 

Tag us on Facebook and Instagram @storiesfromourstreets or use  #storiesfromourstreetsbcp  

Ts and Cs:
By submitting your stories to Stories From Our Streets you are agreeing to your work being part of the Story Map and any future publications, exhibitions and future iterations of the project.
ArtfulScribe and BCP Council will not share your information with any third parties.
