Do you have an object that has a special meaning for you? An object that you use everyday, an object you can’t live without, an object handed down through the family, that has survived a journey, has been given to you by a loved one or kept to commemorate an important time?
The Story Box is an exciting new project set to record Newcastle residents’ personal stories inspired by those personal objects. The stories created will be brought together in an online archive and kept for future generations to listen to, capturing a slice of the city’s history.
The finished stories will be screened during 2017 at locations around Newcastle in a specially converted red telephone box including Newcastle City Library and Eldon Square.
Our 1 day workshops give you the opportunity to share your own story and experiences with others and learn how to make your own personal digital story using photos and recordings, telling the story behind your special object.
There are two workshops to choose from:
Friday 12 May, 10am - 4pm
Monday 15 May, 10am - 4pm
Workshops are free thanks to funding from the Community Foundations's Newcastle Cultural Investment Fund but limited to 8 participants.
Refreshments will be provided.
