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 Age UK. Workshops took place with a Lunch Club based at St Silas Church in Byker. Age UK Newcastle have worked with and for older people since 1965, providing a range of services and support to people aged 50+ in Newcastle upon Tyne.
