Story Seeds 2023/24: County Down

Story Seeds 2023/24: County Down


Our project got off to a great start with our County Down delivery! The participants wrote songs, short stories and comic strips with the help of our facilitators and volunteers.

We started each session with brainstorming local landmarks, which ranged from Newry Town Hall, to the Europa Buscentre, to Primark! How many local landmarks can you recognise from our zines?
