Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Cinestar: Golow Gas


Golow Gas: William Murdoch and the history of lightmaking technologies

Using film and moving image, Cinestar has worked with Pennoweth School and Cornwall College,to explore the world of William Murdoch and his amazing discoveries about light.  He invented the gas light and was the first person in the world to have his house lit by coal gas!  Redruth has such a remarkable history and local children need to know about it.  This project is being developed in  partnership with Café Scientifique, with screenings in Murdoch House and the Cornwall Studies Library.
