We are Bath!

A group of BA (Hons) Media Communications students from Bath Spa University are inviting members of the public to share their stories, memories and experiences of Bath as part of an online sharing experience.

The 'We are Bath' Team.
The ‘We are Bath’ Team.

We are Bath is an online platform and interactive map that will create a collage of the community’s memories.

Residents are invited to submit their story in 200 words or less, attach a picture and answer these three simple questions:

1. Where is your favourite place in Bath?
2. Why is that your favourite place?
3. What memories does it hold for you?

Once a submission has been uploaded it will join other memories to form an online interactive map which visitors to the website can browse and share.

Explaining where the idea came from, third year BA (Hons) Media Communications student, Laura Davies said: “We were inspired by the existing community media projects that are currently out there and wanted to create something that would tell the story of the residents of Bath, in a visually exciting and interactive way.”

The website is now open and can be accessed at http://wearebath.wix.com/wearebath. The closing date for submissions is Monday 15 May.

The project and its contents will be showcased later this year at the Museum of Bath at Work.
