Digital Stories

Digital Stories are short, 3-5 minute films featuring narrative voice, illustrated by photography and sometimes film. Music is often included with a story to set the tone and pace.

Digital Stories are used to create an individual's personal narrative and record their perspective of a particular period of time, event or circumstance in their life. For the person creating their Digital Story, this can have a therapeutic value or effect, which can also extend to the story's viewers.

The Digital Story catalogue is varied and covers a range of issues and themes. These stories are examples of how the work of the Moray Community Planning Partnership, or its partners, have affected the lives of residents in Moray.

About the Digital Stories project

Digital Stories was a Community Services/NHS Telecare funded project from 2008-2010. During this time, the project established a library of 70 Digital Stories from people from the Moray and Grampian area. This was the only project of its kind in Scotland at the time which had appointed full-time Digital Stories project officers.

The project was funded until March 2010 and was free for anyone in the public domain or staff who were involved within Community Services/Telecare.
