Proud To Be is the theme of this year’s Black History Month and we’re running a Mobile Storytelling course with that theme!

Our Version Media is Proud To Be a social enterprise equipping Southampton’s black, ethnic and other under-represented communities with digital media and storytelling skills to tell their own, authentic stories.

With the first Proud To Be workshop complete, the group – which includes four learners who are over 65 years of age – have developed their stories and are now busy filming in preparation for workshop two!

It’s great to be delivering training in-house, now that lockdown over! We moved our training from online to in-person in August. Our first face-to-face session was with a group of young people from Northam and Newtown and we have many more workshops booked throughout September.

We’d like to thank Mayflower Engage for funding our two-part Proud To Be training.
