Golden Stories

Golden Stories was an oral history project commissioned by the Merkinch Community Centre. Every week for three months, older people from the are would meet with pupils from Inverness High School and share memories and experiences. We were on hand to film these sessions and conduct interviews with the participants. We also conducted filming and editing training sessions and worked collaboratively with a team of 4 of the participants to create the final edits.

Over the thirteen weeks, the barrier between those behind camera and those in front gradually disappeared and we became very much part of the group. So much so, that at the final celebration of the project, we were interviewed ourselves. You can see the video of that celebration day above.
