Beyond the Map was a six-month local history and digital storytelling project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and led by the Ouseburn Trust in partnership with Curiosity Creative. Using iPads, the project was delivered in five cohorts, with local community groups and members of the public, who came together to share memories on work and play in the Ouseburn and surrounding area through reminiscence sessions and guided walks.

This digital story was produced in a digital storytelling project delivered in partnership with Tyneside Women's Health. Tyneside Women’s Health was set up in 1985 to provide mental health support to women in a women-only environment. Tyneside Women’s Health is a registered charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee. The organisation serves women across Tyneside via a Centre in Gateshead and a Centre in East Newcastle. In year 2012 – 2013, 425 women accessed Tyneside Women’s Health for support with their mental health and emotional wellbeing. This support is provided by utilising a range of services such as mental health courses, counselling, support groups and drop in sessions. Innovative projects such as this are also utilised to help women develop creative skills to enhance their wellbeing as well as practical skills to enable progression.
