Community Voices:
Memories and Stories of Island People

A docufilm that unveils personal perspectives of pandemic and post-pandemic community resilience and human connection, told through words, animation and film. It is the result of  a participatory arts project that invited the contribution of people of all ages and from diverse backgrounds to share their life experiences on Shetland during the challenging pandemic period.

Past projects

Prescription delivery service

Project supported by The Prince’s Countryside Fund

Project timeline: May - October 2020

Covering an area of 11 square miles, Bressay is a small island linked to mainland Shetland through a roll-on/roll-off ferry service. Our project, made possible by The Prince’s Countryside Fund, offered a free prescription delivery service to our immediate community providing emergency response in time of need.


Through this project we assisted 68 individuals, and delivered approximately 490 prescriptions throughout the project’s six-month duration.
