VISUALLY IMPAIRED GROUP MAKES FILMS ABOUT EDUCATION

A series of 10 short films have been created by a group of participants with varying degrees of sight loss as part of Making the Future’s 100 Shared Stories programme.

‘Every Day is a School Day’ ran from January to March 2021, delivered by the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) and Nerve Centre in partnership with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

The first-time filmmakers took part in several Zoom workshops, which included filmmaking skills with advocate and visually impaired YouTuber Holly Scott-Gardner and a virtual tour of PRONI’s archives.

Each participant was then challenged to make a short film that reflected their personal experiences with education. 

Here’s what they have to say about their experience of the programme:
