Digital Storytelling and Community Arts

Breaking Barriers Community Arts (BBCA) is a community arts organisation  using digital arts to engage with and transform communities. BBCA specialises in Digital Storytelling.  The digital stories are fantastic resources and are commonly used for teaching in schools, heritage and as a storytelling art form.  Examples of digital story telling and other forms of video media production can be found on either the digital story archive or tutorial section.  We also offer training and workshops for all ages and abilities.

Get Involved with Storytelling

There are many ways to get involved.  “Get Involved” summarizes how you can get involved in our projects.  We customise projects, to meet specific requirements and run lots of workshops in schools and in the community.  If you prefer we can show you how to make digital stories or how to use specific applications or use storytelling techniques in your presentations.

Digital Storytelling Archive

Since working with the BBC, on the Capture Wales Project we have continued to capture hundreds of digital stories and films.  We have categorised some of these and they are available to view on our Showcase section.  View our Story of the Week.
