Complementing its touring programme, Adverse Camber runs projects connecting people with storytelling in creative and involving ways.

Story Roots

Storytelling in care homes across Derbyshire

In partnership with Derbyshire County Council Virtual School, Adverse Camber is running a project exploring stories with young people and staff at six care homes in Derbyshire.  Storyteller Christine McMahon has been visiting the homes to tell and listen to  stories since April 2015. She has also met staff to share stories with them.

Christine McMahon, based in Hebden Bridge, is well known across UK storytelling for the warmth and wit of her stories, including her fantastic Festival at the Edge 2011 commission, Goosewing, and her many years of experience working with stories and young people, as well as her work with restorative justice.

Over the Autumn, Christine will lead more story-sharing in and around care homes and with staff.

The project is being coordinated by Jan Reynolds.
