Young People

Young people told of their experiences in relation to the issues of playing safely, making friends, traffic and the ongoing problems resulting from living in an interface area in Northern Ireland.
The group looked at how a story is created, the structure of a story and then discussed issues that related to safety for them. When devising and recording their experiences some of the young people worked individually and some in groups of two. The young people made storyboards to help them identify the images they needed to take with the digital cameras and to confirm the sequence of the story. The young people then went to the Verbal Arts Centre recording studio to record their story. Then the voices and images were edited together. The young people took great pride in showing their stories to the older people.

The young people then went out with some of the older people to take images with the digital cameras to illustrate the stories the older people had recorded.
