May 2015 saw the launch of the Western Bay Programme’s YouTube channel ‘ Western Bay TV’ – an online forum that enables us to share originally-created clips promoting the work of the Programme and its impact on the lives of citizens across the region.
The channel is very much in its infancy, but already features photo slideshows of recent events, as well as ‘Rena’s Story’ – a short film outlining the experience of a 93 year old service user from the Neath Port Talbot locality.
Prue Thimbleby, Arts Co-ordinator for the ABMU Health Board, said:
“Digital stories are a powerful and effective means of conveying the thoughts and feelings of those who have had experience of health and social care services. What better way to capture a person’s story than to allow them to express it themselves?
We were pleased to have the Western Bay Communications and Engagement Officer join us on one of our recent ‘Digital Stories’ training courses, and look forward to seeing how Western Bay TV takes shape”.
