Storytelling Project for M.E. Awareness

I'm  pleased to announce that I'll be working with Action for M.E. in the coming year facilitating a digital storytelling project to raise awareness of those living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Through a series of workshops, I'll be encouraging participants in the programme to discover and share their stories through the medium of video. By the end of the project, we aim to produce a digital storytelling toolkit which can be used by others.

For more information about the project and about M.E. and CFS click on the following link:

Thanks!
