DIY Stories Project Find Out More

From 2012-2014 DIY Futures storytelling project ran, bringing together people with lived experience of mental distress and project staff.  They worked side by side to listen to and record people's stories across Powys and this resulted in a beautiful hard-backed book called "it's the inside that matters".  You can find out more about this work here.

DIY Stories Book Available in All Powys Libraries

The Powys library service has welcomed the book into its collections enthusiastically, and we would like to thank the staff for their support in this and the book’s ongoing promotion.  You can read more here

It's The Inside That Matters Book Launch

That’s a truth that many of us recognise – it’s not how we look but how we feel, what we feel strongly about, what hurts or has hurt us, what has shaped us, what brings us joy that matters. That is one of the essential messages of our beautiful book. We were struggling to find a title, going over many suggestions, some of us liked one, some another, but when one of the contributors to the book said, “After all it’s the inside that matters” we all realised immediately that this was the title we had been searching for.  You can read more here.

You can watch a video of the book launch here, and a video of Marion Aslan speaking at the same event here.
