We were at the 'Stories of Conflict, Migration and Place' event on Wednesday 4th May hosted by Community Arts North West and Platforma. We attended a very useful workshop on how to write scripts to make effective videos. We also saw a series of short videos in the morning that people had caught on their mobiles, showing different stories from the Syrian conflict. We discussed how useful it was to use videos to tell stories, personal narratives and raise awareness.
In the evening there was a film viewing 'Queens of Syria' which was an eye opening watch.
Overall a very useful, interesting day.
