February member update: Stories continue to be told with help from DSW member Chrissie

Twenty six participants from Warwickshire joined Chrissie for an interactive talk about life story writing recently.  They enjoyed  time 'together', and were inspired to start capturing their own 'anecdotes' from memory after hearing extracts from some of the extra-ordinary things some of Chrissie's students had been writing about during lockdown and before. Chrissie will be looking forward to judging their future writing competition. 

 Chrissie has been working with a children from a local primary school delivering workshops to encourage pupils to remember then capture in words their 2020 experiences.  The resulting Soundscape was to form part of an Arts of Remembrance exhibition however it will now be added to a film instead.
