In March 2017 Groundwork organised a talk and screening of Abigail Reynolds’ film The Mother’s Bones for students at Truro and Penwith College. The Mothers’ Bones was developed through a close working relationship with St Keverne Band and band leader Gareth Churcher and explores the band’s relationship with Dean Quarry on the Lizard peninsula.
In November 2017 the Groundwork team invited twenty students from the college for lunch in CAST Café and to attend a drawing workshop led by CAST studio artists Nicola Bealing and Ben Sanderson. Students were also able to learn about ways to get involved as volunteers in the Groundwork programme in 2018.
