Prof Do Coyle of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, presents ‘Sustaining and Developing Island Communities: Extreme Measures for Extreme Communities’.

This presentation is about ‘extreme’ communities where the digital infrastructure is lacking.  Prof Dyle will look at different kinds of community building in isolated places to enable connection and be connected. He’ll also tell the story of Telling Tales and I-Scape.

This is a free session but attendeees need to reserve their place by emailing storytelling@glam.ac.uk

This is the first of the University of Glamorgan’s George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling Communities 2.0 research seminars.  Communities 2.0  is a Welsh Assembly Government programme which helps community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises in Wales do more with technology.  It’s delivered by five partner organisations – the Wales Co-operative Centre, the Novas Scarman Trust, Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services, Carmarthenshire County Council and the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling at the University of Glamorgan.  Much of the funding for Communities 2.0 has come from the European Regional Development Fund.
