Manchester Community Media

Our Manchester Community Media project is about helping people to tell their stories and particularly showcase the great work in the voluntary and community sector. We run accessible film training using particpants own smart phones and devices and our focus is on the content and not the equipment.

'I know everybody enjoyed the training. Thank you so much for helping to make it feel achievable. That was really well done because I know a few of us were feeling unsure about it.' Hazel, Manchester University Socialogy Department

The training can help you showcase the work you do, improve the skills of the people you work with or be used as a consultation or evaluation tool. It is often included as an element of a wider project. Have a look at some of the projects we have already run:
