The Stories

The Journey between home and hospital is a collection of stories told by six people who have survived cancer. They tell of their experiences, their thoughts and feelings, and describe how cancer has changed their lives. Through pictures and sound, the stories, convey the strength of human spirit over adversity.

Production history

Filmmaker and Media Artist Richard Urbanski came together with Gudrun Jones, Art Therapist at Y Filltir Sgwâr to develop the storytelling project Between Home and Hospital. What you see is a collection of stories that have been produced for this website and a pilot DVD. This is very much a first stage in a journey and we are developing the storytelling project to include more contributions from patients and their families. We are currently seeking funding to continue Between Home and Hospital and would welcome support from potential collaborators.
