Workshop 1: Stories

The thing that strikes you most about the young people here at Body and Soul is the confidence they have to tell their stories within this safe space. And boy do they have some stories.. It’s truly humbling to hear them speak about the issues they have had to deal with growing up affected by HIV.

So, stories are where we shall begin. We workshoped appropriate, challenging questions that would get under the skin of the issues and set them off with small video cameras to interview each other.

The group really took to it, describing key points in their lives that have been affected by their condition. The content they have produced, though normal to them, is so rich it’s exciting to see the possibilities of where the project could go.
