We work side by side with people with lived experience. The process is a mutual exchange of skills and ideas.

At the heart of our approach is providing opportunities for people to build skills, explore their identity and express themselves creatively, alongside making a difference with the films and podcasts they make.

We offer dynamic accredited learning where people can document the impact of their journey and develop hands-on experience in community leadership.

trauma-informed approach

The way we work takes into account that the people we meet may have experienced trauma. We provide an ethical process that is person-centered and builds trust.

We protect storytellers from feeling exploited by a ‘re-telling’ of their stories by providing them with tools to apply their lived experience on their own terms.

We support people to decide what they want to share so that they can manage the boundaries and complexities within their own stories before diving into media-making.
