Moving stories is collaboration between spacetocreate – a community arts organisation specialising in participatory visual arts and curious ostrich – a community educational and documentary video company. The project aims to work with people of all ages and abilities using visual arts and digital media to tell stories that can be used to shape the planning and delivery of services in Pembrokeshire.

Over four years (2013-17), more than 100 people will take part in a series of experimental and creative media projects that will be archived on this site as well as being showcased in the community through a programme of exhibitions and screenings. The portfolio will include:

  • sound recordings
  • photographs
  • public art works
  • digital stories
  • documentary films
  • animation

Each year, the project will focus on different groups:

Whilst each story will be individual and unique, through a careful and considered selection process, the projects will have the potential of illustrating wider shared realities and can be used in a variety of ways:

  • As a reminder for service planners of the issues and concerns faced by people they are planning for
  • To promote discussion within community forums
  • As a tool for people acting as advocates on behalf of vulnerable groups
  • To inform the wider community of the diverse needs within it
