Welcome

We are a digital media company specialising in community arts, using it as a medium to promote understanding and build mutual respect between community groups.

Digital stories are a big part of our work, we use them extensively in our community projects and also in organisations and companies for project evaluation, promotion and team building.

Communities

 

Over the last 5 years Creative Arts Wales has run a variety of arts and craft workshops within communities.  At present the main focus of work is geared towards digital storytelling and helping other people to tell their own stories.

You can find out all about digital storytelling by watching the video above. If you'd like to know how stories are made, and how you can get involved, click here for the FAQs.

On the site you will discover some amazing stories from ordinary people taken from the many projects that Creative Arts Wales has been involved with over the years. Explore previous digital stories, or choose one that catches your eye from the showcase below.

The majority of these projects have included working with intergenerational groups, schools, vulnerable individuals, and organisations tackling social exclusion and need.
