Description

Over the last few months Creative Minds, Peoples Voice Media and the University of Huddersfield have been working together to train participants from Creative Minds and Partnership projects to become Community reporters. Participants were trained to collect stories, peer to peer, using smartphones to capture short films or audio clips. The stories were about what creativity means to them and how it contributes to their wellbeing.

We would like to invite you to a conversation for change event to hear some of the stories and key themes that have emerged from the stories and join in with some of the discussions we’ve been having.

We know that creative activities are not just soft and fluffy but a major contributor to helping people to reach their potential and live well in their community.

Come along if you agree or disagree and we can have a debate.
