Stretch Charity is characterised by an innovative arts and storytelling agenda that has proven successful in prisons and community projects for over a decade.
Over the past three years, their Big Lottery-funded Stretch Digital project has been an early pioneer in terms of introducing creative digital technology into the prison estate. Sadly, governors are still struggling with the question of how to implement a functional digital infrastructure into our prisons.
Stretch Charity’s Talesfrom the Digital Underground symposium marks the end of the project, and asks:
What is the particular power and relevance of digital storytelling to this community?
And how can we utilise the lessons learned over the past three years to move forward?
Guests will have the opportunity to see and discuss a number of digital stories from the project; hear from project directors, academics and artists; and ask the speakers questions in a panel session. There will be time for further discussions with drinks provided.
