Barrie facilitated two digital storytelling events in 2014. One for the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust on a new housing development in York called Derwenthorpe. New and old residents of the area told stories of about living in and near this new and, at times, controversial development.
The second was at the Riding Lights Summer Theatre School, where participants told stories loosely based around the anniversary of World War One on the theme Peace… Break it or Keep it
Those workshops may be the last from the digistories business I set up in 2005. I’m reluctant to say “That’s it”, but I think it is.
Joan has continued to work at The Yorkshire Museum and The Castle Museum as an Educational Facilitator but she has put down co-ordinating pastoral visiting at the church because of the demands of supporting Warwick through his illness. Having the time to be with him is more important to us at the moment.
