Filmmaker Debs Paterson




Memory Makers is designed to be shared. We've created an interactive Twitter visualisation to track who is keeping the memory alive, and how far our stories are spreading on social media. 




We are asking you to create and submit your own artistic responses to the life stories of survivors, in the same way that our Memory Makers artists are doing. Watch our artists explain why they got involved with the project and upload your response to our online gallery .
