Joining Threads will examine the effect story telling might have on individuals who report feelings of social isolation. This project is in its infant stage (stalled because of the Global Pandemic). I have started identifying 16 individuals who will be interviewed with a view to telling, writing and disseminating the stories. The participants will be interviewed again after the stories have been shared in various media. The hope is that this will be phase one of a larger research project which links storytelling and well-being.
