Silver Stories (2013-2015) brought digital storytelling to community groups and elderly people.

The term Digital Storytelling describes a simple, creative process through which people with little or no experience of computers, gain skills needed to tell a personal story as a two-minute film using predominantly still images that can be streamed on the web or broadcast on television.

Silver Stories was an action research partnership spanning nine organisations across six countries. Its programme used Digital Storytelling as a means to:-

enhance the education and training of health and social care professionals, collect and evaluate stories told by marginalized people across Europe, and develop the understanding of digital storytelling as a form of oral history and identity in the age of multimedia.
