100 Stories Deep

100 Stories Deep is a community storytelling project that tells 100 stories over 100 days by artists and creatives from across Balsall Heath and Birmingham.

Led by Balsall Heath based Arts organisation, The Gap Arts, and supported by Arts Council England, 100 Stories Deep was an ambitious project, completed during Spring and Summer 2020 in the midst of lockdown.

Each story is completely different – and is chosen by each individual artist of creative. I was invited to tell a story and chose the book ‘Child of St Kilda’ about the last people to live on the remote Scottish island of St Kilda before the community was evacuated. It follows the story of Norman John Gillies (no relation) and is wonderfully told and illustrated by Beth Waters.
