“Blight Fever”, has been carefully curated to equally embody heritage and history through the medium of storytelling, specifically using the dark side of folklore. This community centred project is to encourage individuals of all ages to be inquisitive of the history of their town and what unique stories that may lie within. Using her experience as a learning & engagement officer at a leading art charity in Halifax, the project drives user engagement to leave the participant curious and wanting to learn more about the subject matter.
