Team Cornwall was established in 2006 to bring the legacies of London 2012 to life in the county.
Priorities for Cornwall
A number of priorities and major opportunities were identified for Cornwall:
- Encouraging and supporting young people within the region through sponsorship of potential Olympians, curricular development in schools and colleges and cultural exchange with other countries
- Developing volunteering by encouraging a network of trained local volunteers to work on behalf of the 2012 Games within the community or at one of the 2012 venues
- Creating a spirit of togetherness by uniting local businesses, schools and communities
Kernocopia was Cornwall’s official submission to the Cultural Olympiad and, being Cornish, it was offbeat. It was a glorious mash-up of Cornwall’s sporting, cultural, arts and heritage communities to mark and toast the 2012 London Olympics.
Kernocopia culminated in a theatrical pop-up performance that could be soaked up at venues across the South West during the summer of 2012. Visit the Kernocopia website for more information.
