Helping families keep in touch

Helping families keep in touch –
The official launch saw five African families take part in a three-day digital storytelling workshop as part of Changing Perspectives – a project which aims to create a multimedia archive to celebrate the heritage of African and Caribbean families living in the North East.
The launch event saw families create their own three-minute films for publication on the programme’s website and will also go forward to be broadcast at a world premiere event during black history month in October.
The workshop involved script writing, voice-over recording, and mastering industry-standard image and video editing production.
Participants used personal stories of their experience from living in both Africa and the North East and pictures from their family photo album.
Peter Adegbie, creator of the Changing Perspectives programme, said: “I am so pleased to launch the new NEEACA building with the Changing Perspectives digital storytelling project as this exemplifies what the new building is all about.
“The stories from the families will be truly inspirational and will give a real insight into their views of being of African descent and their experiences of living in the North East.

Peter Adegbie trained on one of my Train the Trainers courses. It’s good to see the project in the North East getting started … and gaining some publicity too. By the way, this is not related to the other project I am linked to in the North East.
