When someone dies, life for those who were close to them will never be the same again. In a society that often has difficulty talking openly about death, dying and bereavement, stories have an important role to play in fighting this stigma. 

Have you got a story to tell? Have you experienced bereavement and do you want to share your experience to help others?

This is an opportunity to work with three film-makers over three days and produce a short film to be screened at Good Grief Bristol, a new festival to help people talk, think and learn about grief. 


This three day workshop is for young people aged 14-19 year old who have experienced bereavement. You will be supported by experienced youth workers from Creative Youth Network and bereavement specialists from Winston's Wish.

You'll work with three young film-makers from University of Bristol, exploring a creative response to grief through a short film, based on your personal experiences.      

Where: The Station, Silver Street, BS1 2AG

When: Tues 18th - Thurs 20th February, 10am - 4pm

No experience of film-making necessary 

You can express an interest below and we'll get in touch to have a chat and make sure this workshop is right for you.
