Liminal Studios and Youth Justice Voices are inviting young people aged 16 - 25 with experience of the care and justice systems to participate in the digital storytelling workshops which take place on Monday 15th and 22nd May from 6pm at the Staf participation space in central Glasgow. 

Using the latest virtual reality technology, participants will be encouraged to become aware of their own power, challenge the labels and write their own story for the future. Pizza will also be provided! 

The plan for the 2 weeks is as follows 

Week 1: Monday 15th May

 Take part in fun warm-up games and help shape how we work together.

Co-create persona characters to highlight examples of the stigma that care and justice experienced young people can unfairly experience.

Explore our collective understanding of how stigma happens, how it feels for the character to be stigmatised and how we could re-frame the story.

Play with the process of making 3d sculptural photographs.

Week 2: Monday 22nd May

Exploring how we can use virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to reflect on our experiences from week 1.

Reflect and record audio feedback on how we think our character feels in the scenarios.

Create Verbatim audio recordings to communicate our thoughts and feelings while protecting privacy.

Decide how we would like the project's outcomes to be experienced by audiences who attend the National Youth Justice Conference (15th June).
