Calling all Community Groups! 

Do you have a story to tell?

The Living and Learning Community Training Project is a unique opportunity for all community groups to receive professional training in media literacy and production.  There is a further exciting chance for 14 selected groups to receive further intensive training through which they produce audio and/or film pieces conveying a message of their choosing.

Through a series of workshops delivered via blended learning (online and in-person), participants will learn how to do the following:

  • Tell your own story
    • Ensuring your perspectives are seen & heard as you want them to be
  • Gain Media Skills
    • Helping groups in doing future media projects (from Oral History to YouTube videos)
  • Reflect & Distil:
    • Reflect on what you do as a community, and why you do it.
  • Build skills for the future:
    • Getting people on the same page
    • Rebuilding Momentum
    • Reframing your story
    • Communicating what you do and why – a vital skill for completing funding applications, mobilising volunteers, and fundraising
