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 Hotspur Primary School. Hotspur Primary School was built and opened in 1984 following the merger of Sandyford and North View schools. It is based in the Ouseburn Valley and on the edge of the City Centre. The stories were made by parents of children who attend the school.
