Belfast Stories

The Belfast Stories Project was funded by Belfast City Council's Art & Heritage Fund.

The project involved young people from Milltown, Belvoir and Braniel capturing stories from the past and creating an online video collection.

Dreamscheme set up two group interview sessions with two groups of senior citizens, firstly with a group of residents from Taylor Court Sheltered Home in Belvoir, and then another group of elderly residents from Braniel estate.

Through the project, young people developed new film-making and social media skills, while also gaining a deeper understanding of what life was like in Belfast in recent history.

An enjoyable showcase event was hosted at Taylor Court, giving participants the opportunity to see the finished video collection.

The series of short videos can also be viewed at www.facebook.com/belfaststories.
