Bringing residents' stories to life

Three short films have been produced capturing life stories and poignant memories of residents at Woodlands care home in Crowborough.

Capturing special moments in social history, the 'Bringing our stories to life' project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has been run by community artists at Everyday Creativity and Sussex Housing & Care.

Personal stories

Artists from Everyday Creativity led the project and their experience working with local communities brought understanding and a sensitive approach to the sessions. Marisa, pne of the artists involved, is pleased with the outcome: “It has been a privilege to work with everyone to create such beautiful, personal digital stories. We're delighted to have partnered with Sussex Housing & Care to provide a platform for these digital stories to be shared.”
