What’s Your Story (WYS) is a great example of young peoples creative talents and the sort of projects Creative Express can deliver.
Funded and supported through Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022, WYS offered groupwork and one-to-one opportunities to explore themes of: Identity, Community and Hope.
These themes, identified by young people consulted during the summer, led to Creative Express running weekly WYS group sessions that included inputs from Storyteller Claire McNicol and Writer Ken Cockburn.
The project included a fantastic performance event held at Leith Community Centre, attended by an audience of friends, family, local projects, local young people and supportive others.
This allowed some of the WYS participants to share their creative work and that of other young people involved in the project.
Feedback from the event was also really encouraging, you can read what people had to say here: Audience Feedback and the feedback from the young people who were involved in the project has been fantastic:
