Participants will work together in mini groups to create digital artwork through one of these disciplines:

“Through this project we are listening, talking and playing with new meanings, interpretations and stories, and, out of this, new visions for the future of connecting with our communities will emerge”
Discovered Stories, Shared Communities is a joint quest for the ideals of belonging and identity built by voices of people who have lived in Cumbria for generations and those who have come here from different corners of the world to make it their home.
