Part of: Educating Creatively Conference

Past event

Presenter: Fiona Barr

Wellbeing Presentation

Project 52 creates stories to facilitate social and emotional communication. Social isolation is a ‘collective emotional crisis’ in the western world and has been highlighted in this pandemic.

Every person whatever their disability, possesses personal charisma, wants to be appealing and belong to others. By collaborating in stories people can have personal and intimate encounters which create connection and support engagement.

Through storytelling we use the ‘Act of Seeing’ by being available, attentive, and focused so that people can, feel safe, connect, make choices, express themselves and develop curiosity. Storytelling creates a sharing experience, supports empathy, and opens an entry point to the world of the other.

The pandemic led to making stories to go into homes that were shielding. Our team creates digital films with resources and story books to lead and support people to share together whilst developing connections in an environment full of colour, sound, and texture.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
