The CatStrand Arts Centre provides high quality arts programmes for the Glenkens region and far beyond that. Many local people rely on the Arts programmes to stay connected to arts and culture and each other. This is extremely important in maintaining health and well-being in such a rural and isolated area. The CatStrand Arts Centre want to ensure that older residents and the digitally excluded are able to stay connected.
Working with the CatStrand Arts Centre, People’s Voice Media are delivering a creative digital storytelling project for older and digitally excluded people in the Glenkens. We will be up-skilling people in a creative way, to discover how digital tools can be used creatively and to keep people virtually connected to arts provision during times of crisis.
