Unique opportunity for group of young people in Bridgend County Borough to get involved with 'NHS at 70': 'Cradle to Grave' project

Date published: 17/10/2017

Here is a unique opportunity for a group of young people in Bridgend County Borough to get involved as an early posterpartner to the BIG Lottery funded University of Manchester's 'NHS at 70: 'Cradle to grave' project.

The University has contracted Peoples Voice Media to offer young people in our area the following:-

  • FREE Storytelling training sessions.  PVM is offering to run a storytelling session for a youth group (or combination of young people from a range of youth groups).  Participants will learn how to tell their own stories and have them recorded, but also be trained to record other people's stories too. These will be uploaded onto the national digital archive;
  • FREE Curating/film editing sessions. From the above activities, PVM hopes young people will also want to attend some curation/editing training to learn additional skills.

Proposed dates for them coming to Bridgend are:

  • Storytelling sessions - Friday 3 November storytelling session / Saturday 4 November story gathering;
  • Co-curation sessions - two dates to follow in December.

There is some flexibility in these dates,  PVM is URGENTLY seeking interested partners from youth groups at this stage. They are open to having a discussion as to how the project can progress, dates, and set up.  Bridgend is the only Wales partner identified and so BAVO is obviously keen to promote the third sector youth groups in the County. This is a great opportunity for profile raising your group and for your members to develop long term skills that can be used to also showcase your work in other arena's too.

PVM is also looking for a venue in Bridgend County Borough to run these sessions. If you are interested in being an original partner at this development phase of a national digital archive, please call Hailey TODAY is possible or THIS WEEK (ending 20 October 2017). Her number is 07796260920. 

Please also let Jo at BAVO know so we can tie things together this end, by calling BAVO, T: 01656 810400.
