Extending Creative Practice (2010-2012)
Extending Creative Practice involved five partners from four countries exploring the use of digital storytelling as a means to reduce the digital exclusion of older people and to gather stories from across distinct settings. DigiTales trained trainers from partner organisations in Finland, Slovenia and Romania who then went on to make digital stories with older people. A final conference was held in Maribor, Slovenia as part of the EC Capital of Culture programme during May 2012. The evaluation of the programme can be downloaded from here.
Extending Creative Practice was selected as an example of good practice by the UK National Agency and awarded a prize by the British Council. Research papers addressing the themes of Extending Creative Practice have been presented at international conferences in Spain, Romania, Turkey and Portugal
