In order to assist projects to create and share digital stories about their work, Well Newcastle Gateshead have created a Digital Storytelling instructional video.
Submission of digital stories will now be a grant condition for the Arts Fund and will enable projects to have a lasting record of their impact to generate greater awareness and help with future funding and publicity.
We are asking existing projects to create digital stories about their work and we will share these soon.
We’d like to thank Anton Hecht and Ho-Yin Wong for the creation of the video and Claire Webster Saaremets and her project team from Skimstone Arts for taking part!
