Telling our story, through the lockdowns and beyond

The #unlockedlives video project explores the narratives of Self in the present moment from the standpoint of a diverse group of disabled people. It investigates and portrays the attitudes of a core ensemble, enquires about their hopes and fears, and captures instances of home life as narrated in first person and without filters, agendas or intermediaries.

The setting of a safe on-line workspace has given our participants a framework to offer a record of their life and thoughts during the protracted Covid19 social and medical crisis.

Accessible videomaking resources, and an emphasis on ‘demystifying the tech’ while encouraging a commitment to output, has fostered enjoyable skill-building, and has helped creating a great deal of compelling and powerful moments of self.

The project has grown through the challenges posed by the ever-changing Welsh Coronavirus landscape, and what was initially thought of as a celebration of regained freedom in a post-Covid Wales, has instead focused on capturing the private, everyday issues faced by our members through the waves of this pandemic, and contributed to the creation of a repository of self-expressive content.
