We were fortunate enough to have been commissioned to a project called Stories from the Villages. We travelled out to Castleconnell, a rural village in County Limerick, where we began collecting generations of stories through short videos of many wonderful characters from all walks of the community.
Every Village has a thousand stories to tell.
Stories from the local communities, business owners and people living in the villages
What was particularly special about this project was that as we got more established, we started to share the tricks of the trade, and to teach some locals how to use some simple video equipment.
Resultingly, this community, both young and old, were empowered to begin a journey of recording their own stories, of their own accord. A creative project where the model could be used a blueprint for any community in Ireland.
