BBC Scotland are coming to Thurso in August 2007 to run storytelling and audio visual workshops. You can tell your story and share it with the world through 'Highland Lives', a BBC Scotland / Highland 2007 project running this summer throughout the Highland region. The workshops will help you illustrate your story about Highland life through video or audio slideshow. The finished pieces will be shown on the BBC Highland Lives website http://www.bbc.co.uk/highlandlives
Stories on the website will reflect the modern-day reality of life in northern Scotland. Taking part is free but you do have to apply in advance. No one's too old, although the project is for over-18s only. It doesn't matter whether you have technical experience or not. Your story is what's most important.
