The Old Library Development Project
2022 is the year intoBodmin will attempt to raise £600k to purchase and develop The Old Library! It needs new windows, repointing and some serious upgrades to parts of the interior. We want to make it more accessible, more environmentally friendly and more inviting...
intoBodmin is developing a Bereavement Support project which aims to
help bereaved adults in Bodmin find suitable emotional & practical support
collect their views about future bereavement support.
This project is based on the recognition that bereaved adults may have a wide range of support needs, which can be met by family and friends or services in the community as well as through professional services and those with specialist knowledge and skills.
All Things Youth
The aim of this project is to create activities supported and led by the young people of our community. A safe space to learn new skills, meet new friends and platform the incredible community work our young people are achieving.
Some of our greatest hits -
Bodminton is an imaginative tiny town for young children. With scaled down shops and services, it provides a unique role play experience.
Bodminton includes a veterinary surgery, supermarket, construction site, post office and ice cream stand. All downsized, to be enjoyed by little ones.
The project ran from November 2021 to May 2022.
The Kernow Bedroom Choir
Singing has been a way of bringing communities together for generations. So, at the start of the first lockdown, intoBodmin and Daniel Woodfield teamed up to create a short series of tutorials to teach people the melody and harmonies of some of Cornwall’s most cherished folk songs.
People were invited to learn a part and submit a recording to the virtual choir.
All The Beautiful Things
Would you like to see Bodmin through fresh eyes? To listen and feel more closely to the place you live in?
Artist group Blind Ditch invited residents of all ages to contribute to an exciting new media project about all the beautiful things – oll an taklow teg – in Bodmin.
The result was an online adventure of a small hedgehog as he explores the town from a different perspective...
Bodmin Lights Up
Working with local primary schools and international projection and visuals company The Colour Project, intoBodmin created a spectacular light show as part of the town's Christmas Light Switch On event, in 2018 and 2019.
The Lockdown Patchwork
During lockdown, we partnered with mental health organisation Pentreath and students at Bodmin College with the goal of creating a large patchwork of squares that represented how people in Bodmin felt during the COVID-19 crisis.
