Muslim children's digital stories
11 July 12
On 10 July 2012 a set of digital stories made by Muslim children, aged between six and thirteen, were launched in Cardiff. They are now available to watch here: http://vimeo.com/channels/learningtobeamuslim/page:1
The stories are based on themes that arose in a recent Cardiff University research project, funded by Religion and Society, and they focus on children’s experiences of learning to be a Muslim. The videos were developed in a StoryWorks workshop at the University of Glamorgan where the children were given the skills to produce and edit these stories themselves, supported by impact funding from Religion and Society.
