Cam­pers’ crowd­funded sto­ry­book

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A crowd-funded book has been pub­lished doc­u­ment­ing the her­itage of the Volk­swa­gen camper­van com­mu­nity through own­ers’ per­sonal sto­ries. The book – Home Is Where You Park – is the re­sult of a pro­ject by Cu­rios­ity Cre­ative, a sto­ry­telling or­gan­i­sa­tion based in North Shields, Tyne and Wear.

The pro­ject re­ceived fund­ing both from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund and mem­bers of the UK’s VW camper­van com­mu­nity to help make it hap­pen.

‘I own a 1977 T2 so I know how pas­sion­ate VW camper own­ers are about their ve­hi­cles,’ says Alex Henry, founder of Cu­rios­ity Cre­ative.

In ad­di­tion to the book, dig­i­tal sto­ries have also been recorded that are to be archived by the Na­tional Mo­tor Mu­seum. Dig­i­tal sto­ries can be viewed on­line at www.cu­rios­i­ty­cre­ative.org.uk
