EVERYONE HAS A STORY

EVERYONE HAS A STORY

Everyone Has a story is a creative project that resulted in the creation of a storybook Me and My Story . The twelve week action research project aimed to gain a deeper understanding and evidence the challenges faced by children living in kinship care. 

This project had 3 main aims:

To create opportunities for children to share personal stories through a range of activities and social trips;

To make space for the groups to work together to create original creative pieces which shared a collective voice;

To provide a safe space for children to share their insights and acknowledge their life situations.   

ME AND MY STORY 

Images of islands and the creations of dens described the environments that would meet their needs.

 

Containers, whether empty or full made visual sense of loss and bereavement and overwhelming emotions. While in drama games, balls became memories, some sad, some happy. 

By using the creative process, we can shine a light on the abilities and complexities of what the the young people are experiencing.
