Tresorys Kernow (Cornish Treasures) is a pilot project to breathe new life into towns and villages, with culture and heritage bringing some joy in the context of Covid recovery and climate adaptation.

This project is fully funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund with Cornwall Museums Partnership (CMP) and Creative Kernow each having funds of up to £100,000, shared out through Cornwall Council, to bolster and regenerate towns and villages.

We want to show that town centres can be reinvigorated through an imaginative and locally relevant programme of cultural events. Tresorys Kernow is also about exploring how communities can and should adapt to the very real challenges of climate change and respond to the benefits that nature provides.

CMP will be delivering this project alongside five museums: Bodmin Keep, Charles Causley Trust (Launceston), The Castle (Bude), Royal Cornwall Museum (Truro), and PK Porthcurno.

Creative Kernow will be distributing their funds through cultural partners, freelancers, and artists across five towns: Saltash, Lostwithiel, St Austell, Penzance, and Newquay.
