Heart of Teesdale Creative Media
The programme will support a range of initiatives to use new technology creatively to record, interpret and communicate the activities and products of the partnership projects, building on the work of their Digital Strategy. These are expected to include: toolkits for artistic and educational purposes, commissioning of websites to provide virtual access to media (historic and contemporary), and training to increase the skills within the community to use digital technology to the full. The Partnership will encourage partners and the wider community to publish and disseminate information in a wide range of media: to inform, entertain and ensure that activities are preserved for posterity. It is envisaged that there will be a range of items arising from individual projects but that some will be specially commissioned or encouraged: for example, a Heart of Teesdale Village Atlas or a special Teesdale History aimed at young people. Commissions could include: individual and thematic trails and tours; interpretation boards and documents; digital media productions including film and video; educational items for all ages; popular histories, etc.
This project is now complete.
