We began to talk about how some of these issues might be represented in a creative way to raise awareness of the problem. All sorts of ideas were saved and exchanged. These ranged from photo stories to interviews and documentaries. One member began to make an animation about experience of going to the bookies, three others took photos of all the betting shops and casinos they could find in the local area. We are on our way to creating a great, engaging project that will hopefully warn people against the dangers of gambling.
All of the content will be presented on our new interactive screen in the day centre for everybody, staff, volunteers and service users to see. EXCITING STUFF!
