Healthy Sex Forever

A series of resources produced for Stoke on Trent Public Health promoting good sexual health for people over 50.
The work and ideas were developed though a series of workshops with members of the public who are over 50 and a group of health professionals.
















Sexual Health and People Over 50

As life expectancy increases we are more likely to become widowed, separated or divorced and so it has become more common for us to start new relationships.
Whatever your age it is important not to take risks with your sexual health.
Following a Healthy Sex Forever consultation we have now developed resources aimed at people over 50 that will help you:

To feel confident that sexual health services are for you
To recognise when a talk with a health professional about your sexual health might be useful
To know how to contact sexual health services

Dementia eLearning Modules

We recently spent several days filming in a fantastic residential nursing home in Derbyshire for people with dementia to produce twenty short film clips for use within a new e Learning pilot programme for care staff depicting good practice when working with and supporting people with dementia within a residential care setting. Produced in conjunction with SCIE and Kings College Oxford.

This is one of the short activities films: Singing

National Memory – Local Stories

New website launched featuring work from Media19’s latest project in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, London.
National Memory – Local Stories

Working at museums in Salisbury, Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff, Media19 worked alongside young people to enable them to create their own visual responses to the events of World War 1 using digital media. The brilliantly visual work reveals great thought and insight into what it meant to them, exploring many different themes and ideas and allowing young people to find their own way of connecting to these historic events. It creates a whole new set of contrasting imagery as part of the 2014 WW1 commemorations.

Partner Museums are:
The Rifles Museum, Salisbury; National Museum Northern Ireland;
National Museums Scotland; National Museum Wales

Self Portrait UK


Self Portrait UK is one of Media19’s flagship projects and the forerunner for many of our cross-platform initiatives.

Partnered by Channel 4, the National Portrait Gallery and Arts Council England, Self Portrait UK invited people of all ages to create and send in their own self-portrait and become part of a major touring exhibition that provided a real insight into the eclectic mix of identities from across the UK.


‘da’ Young Fathers’ Project


As part of our on-going nationwide project, Campaign Trail – working to give a voice to young parents – Media19 travelled to Coleraine, North Ireland to work with ‘da’ Young Fathers’ Project from Derry.

Living in Derry has had its impact on the lives of young people and through Campaign Trail, this group of fathers are using digital media to create posters and films that talk about how they feel, the challenges they face, legacies they’ve inherited and the legacy they hope to leave their own children as ‘Dads’.


Campaign Trail

Campaign Trail UK is a nationwide multi-media project supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation that enables young parents – young mums and young dads – to speak out about their lives and the challenges they face – who they are, how they feel and the issues that matter to them.

With support from experienced media producers, a series of creative workshops enable the participants to develop their skills in using digital photography, film, video archive, research and written texts to produce imaginative digital content for their peer to peer education projects, public awareness and community campaigns, for others to learn from.

Their powerful and moving images, produced as posters, video and digital content are used within education, public exhibition, health, online, broadcast and community settings to influence and inspire their peers to make informed parenting, sexual health and relationship choices. (more…)

Young Parents Speak Out

Dame Clare Tickell met young parents from Ashington in Northumberland and Barrow in Furness, Cumbria  at the opening of an exhibition of their work produced for the WE ARE HERE project at the 12 Star Gallery, Europe House, Smith Square, Westminster, London.  Working with Media19 they have produced their own short films that reflect on their experiences as teenage mums and the challenges they face. Their work is being shown alongside that produced for the project from Serbia and Hungary.




Voices of Poverty and Social Exclusion – UK, Hungary, Serbia. Italy

We Are Here is our latest project producing a pan-European initiative with partners in Hungary, Serbia and Italy that brings together people who are facing challenges, struggles, barriers or discrimination in their everyday lives. In a creative partnership with artists and digital media producers they are producing creative and insightful self-portraits – films and visual statements about their lives and circumstances, their hopes, aspirations, experiences, pasts and futures.



DiGi50+ Making the digital world work for you
