What Is 10 STORIES HIGH?

10 Stories High is a Digital Story Telling project that offers participants the opportunity to express their views in words and pictures in a format that can be accessed locally, nationally and internationally.

The Verbal Arts Centre has developed a fantastic digital storytelling project Ten Stories High with the Community Safety Partnership, in the Derry City Council area.

This intergenerational project gave young people and older people in the Bishop Street and Fountain Estate an opportunity to tell the world what they thought about living in their area.
The stories cover two main topics:
Feeling Safe Where We Live and Sharing Space with a different Generation.

The groups involved in the programme were; the Cathedral Youth Club from the Fountain Estate, Riverview Youth Club, Bishop Street, Alexander House (sheltered accommodation) Bishop Street and older past and present residents from the Fountain Estate.
