During lockdown, 4Pi Productions have been delivering workshops about digital storytelling in partnership with Prince’s Trust, supporting 16 to 25 year-olds. The three cohorts hoped to inspire young people to build their confidence and motivation to start a career, aiding participants in gaining skills in digital media production and improving their mental health.
To culminate each of the cohorts 4Pi Productions designed and curated a digital interactive exhibition to showcase the outcomes produced by the participants at three different gallery spaces from across Wales. This program has not only offered young participants a digital platform to showcase their work but has also brought together for the first time three cultural organisations, CULTVR Lab in Cardiff, Pontio in Bangor and Tŷ Pawb in Wrexham.
The feedback from all participants involved has been outstanding. Prince’s Trust and 4Pi Productions are extremely proud of what the young people have achieved in such a short time, about their creativity and how they have pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone to tell their stories of lockdown.
