Breaking Barriers Digital Storytelling screening in South Wales

‘Same Place; Different Routes’ digital stories are being screened by Breaking Barriers at Llanhilleth Institute on Thursday 28th January 2010 at 7pm.

‘Same Place; Different Routes’ has three strands examining the experiences of:

  • recent migrants to Wales and people who moved here some years ago,
  • different generations living together in the Valleys
  • people with a range of mental health issues.

Also being screened on the night are stories made as part of the centenary celebrations at Christchurch Aberbeeg and from Breaking Barriers’ recent Training the Trainers courses.

Ruth Garnault of Breaking Barriers says:

“We believe that everybody has a story to tell and these stories are touching, funny and moving.  Each story lasts about two minutes and gives a fascinating glimpse into other people’s lives.”

It’s an invitation-only screening and if you’re interested in attending by 18 January. The full address for the Institute is: Llanhilleth Institute, Meadow Street, Llanhilleth, Nr Abertillery, NP13 2JT. There are local bus services and the new train station is very close to the Institute.

These stories were made with grant support from Arts Council of Wales and from Communities First Trust Fund, as well as partnerships with Inside Out (promoting mental health) and VALREC, Valleys Regional Equalities Council.
