I began the process of collecting stories of, and commissioning films on the lives of older people in Wales in 2010, and over the years the stories have moved from being part of the dissemination of the findings, to an integral element of the research process. Thus, the projects I have led on, and those I have contributed to as a Co-I, have taken a decided turn towards exploring the lives of older people through visual arts in particular, and creative arts in general.  To date, the stories have emerged from a programme of research. Of  equal importance, is the fact that I am not alone in this endeavour; the aim is to also showcase the stories collected by others,  and from other projects and studies that have been conducted in Wales.
