Digital Story Telling Project
Through funding from Arts ACT, ADACAS partnered with Gen S and PhotoAccess to enable some of our clients to access the arts. Through the medium of Digital Story Telling, people tell their own stories in their own voices. They are a simple yet powerful way to celebrate people and the lives they have led. ADACAS Digital Story Telling project used the theme of Being Heard and each film maker had the opportunity to tell their story and learn the art of film making. Project participants found the experience a rewarding one, the opportunity to explore a new way of having a voice, and to share their stories was both welcome and powerful.
