Guest Speaker – Pip Hardy

Along with Tony Sumner, Pip founded the Patient Voices Programme in 2003 with the intention of bringing more humanity into healthcare through the creation and sharing of digital stories of life and death, health and illness, despair and celebration, hope and transformation.

Some 500 people have participated in workshops to create their digital stories and the model of free distribution of stories via the Patient Voices website has resulted in their use in healthcare education throughout the English-speaking world and beyond.
Apart from facilitating workshops and talking to audiences around the world about Patient Voices, Pip has completed an MSc investigating how the stories are being used and has now embarked on a PhD to consider what it is that makes these stories so popular.

Breakout Sessions

Session 1: Storyworks

At StoryWorks we work with public and third sector organisations, looking to use stories in a range of ways. We also contribute to academic research projects that are seeking to incorporate a story gathering approach within their work. Most of the interest so far has been in our work in the field of digital storytelling, but we have found the need to develop and experiment with the traditional Digital Storytelling form in order to best serve the needs of the particular project with which we are working. In this session we will share examples of our work and explore some of the thinking behind the range of methodology we are using.
