About Inspire Cornwall
In May 2009 a ?4m Appeal was launched to fund a major development project at Truro Cathedral to Inspire Cornwall through Nature, Education, Music & Art and Heritage.
Once upon a time… The people of Cornwall were inspired by the vision of building a Cathedral in the heart of Truro. They dug deep in their pockets and raised the funds to create that vision.
Today… One of the county's most visited landmarks, Truro Cathedral, inspires thousands of people each year with its architecture, music and faith. The future of the Cathedral relies on a vision to restore and redevelop one of Cornwall's iconic landmarks as a green space, a creative space, a meeting place where future generations will come together and find inspiration through Nature, Education, Music & Art and Heritage.
With the successful completion of the restoration of the central tower Inspire Cornwall will now be shifting its focus onto the other components of the Inspire vision, namely Education, Nature, Art and Music. It is hoped that during 2012 plans for these areas of work will be finalised and public fundraising begun. Watch this space, as they say.
