I am the founder of a community based storytelling project called “Over the Back Fence”.
Over the Back Fence uses modern technology, and does something very traditional with it – tells stories. It is dedicated to finding stories in everyday life, celebrating ordinary people and their extraordinary ways and using this information to achieve community, social, educational and health benefits.
Over the Back Fence uses a range of multimedia to create an online presence of digital stories, audio and text pieces, radio documentary, and recorded oral histories. The projects are designed to work with all ages and backgrounds in a wide range of community, social, educational, health and international development settings, including youth groups, aged care facilities, community service centres, libraries and non government organizations.
You can find out more about this project by visiting the website (coming soon).
