Telling our Stories, Finding our Roots: Exeter's Multi-Coloured History

'Telling our Stories, Finding our Roots: Exeter's Multi-Coloured History' is run by Devon Development Education at the Global Centre in Exeter. It was started in 2013 following successful Heritage Lottery Funding.

The Telling Our Stories Finding Our Roots website is a resource for multicultural education and exploration highlighting the diversity in Devon and Exeter's local history. The product of our community research project exploring multiculturalism and diversity in Exeter, supporting Black History Month and Exeter’s Respect festival with information on our story-telling events, local history, films, and schools activities.

From this original project, the funding was available to extend into other towns around Devon. Cosmic utilised WordPress to extend the functionality and allow for categorising stories and resources into the respective towns allowing for the research material to gather under the correct areas. The new site is modern and clear and allows for area coordinators to manage their own information.
