Last weekend Buddug James Jones and myself headed to CARAD to work on their latest event - Finding Rhayader 2: People and Places. The aim of the event was to encourage the local community to re-engage with CARAD and to gather stories from them to be archived and included in their latest exhibition which has the same name.
We left Cardiff for Rhayader Friday morning and arrived at CARAD early in the afternoon. Liz and volunteers were all busy setting up the space and so myself and Bud joined in:
The space was finished and we went back to Alan's where we were staying to have a cuppa and debrief, click here to watch it. (I do accidentally say a rude word, so I apologise in advance.)
My role for the weekend was to run the social media coverage of the event and to run social media workshops.
It was great to be able to share skills that I have and to pass them on to others, who I hope in return will pass them on too. There were lots of discussions about how to be safe when using Social Media and it's good points versus it's bad. We played with Vine. We created Facebook profiles and Facebook Pages for businesses. We experimented with Twitter. We made lots of content and had a lot of fun!

There are lots of photos from the event here on Flickr.
Usually after I return home from working at an event or on a project I feel a little sad because it is over, however, this time I don't because this event marked the beginning of a new chapter for CARAD and it's community. I can't wait to return and see the journey that the event leads to . . .
