“Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch.” Hans Christian Anderson
Explore Discover Develop Create
Explore is where we seek to partner with community groups and voluntary organisations that want to tell stories about issues in their community.
Discover is the next phase. It is about investment and planning. Choosing and using the best stories to release the most important issues. We use fairy tales, folk stories, global myths and cultural legends as the foundation for our work.
Develop is about investment. Finding and equipping people of all ages who want to tell their story, delivering training and workshops to enhance skill sets. We are Trinity College London accredited Arts Award Advisors.
Create is about bringing the stories to life and expanding community awareness of ideas and issues in the created stories. This stage is about showing those stories to the wider community, sharing the stories together. This may be through a film festival, a community-wide performance or a series of visual arts exhibitions in alternative public spaces.
