Training Karen Langworthy

Initially Karen, who is the Older person’s learning co-ordinator in Blaenau Gwent contacted Creative Arts Wales after seeing a DVD of stories from a reminiscence project I had worked on previously.   Karen wanted to do a similar project with some of the older people from 3 of the groups using the Resource Centre.

The DVD was to form part of the Gangwyn festival in focusing on the joys and benefits of learning in older age, but unfortunately part of the funding she applied for to finance this project was turned down. Luckily for her the decision was made for Karen to do one to one training instead.  Karen was taken through the whole process of digital storytelling and completed her story over two and a half days.
