We are currently looking for volunteers to take part in the Manchester edition of the project. Volunteers need to tell two stories and be willing to be interviewed (face to face) about both. Volunteers should be willing to have their photograph taken – the image will be taken in such a way that you remain anonymous. Your stories and portraits may be used to create a new fictional, illustrated story. In return, you’ll receive a signed, limited edition print of your photograph.
We are looking for stories from ordinary people about their lives: beautiful, mundane, magical, dark, secret, curious, the life changing or the heart stopping, or about the small moments in everyday life where the ordinary is illuminated. Stories don’t need to be big or clever; they just need to be about you, and to be believable.
Interviews take place at Cornerhouse on Thursday 14 July 2011. All participants will remain anonymous. If you’d like to share your stories with us, fill in the form on the Participate page and we’ll get in touch.
