Our stories

It has always been important to us to understand what changes happen in people who participate in the arts at the Old Fire Station. What impact does being part of AOFS – as a volunteer, artist, trainee, staff member, trustee, audience member, partner or friend, and doing anything from putting on a show to sorting out the accounts – have on the people who do it? How does it affect their life? Why is this important to them?

Evaluators Liz Firth and Anne Pirie facilitated a storytelling project in 2018, using the Most Significant Change technique to collect stories of significant change from participants.
