Citizen journalism is a powerful tool, but the old storytelling styles have a lot to teach the faster reporting style. Notebook combines a community hub for storytelling with old and new ways of letting those tales reach people. Acting as personal testimony, poetic journeys, in-depth emotional investigations, and frontline experiences, the Notebook’s human library or Second Brain is connecting & writing a new and better story about Blackpool. 

On the summer solstice, Notebook will officially begin to bear witness to Blackpool’s untold community story. Through an ongoing series of story sessions, we will share these stories, reflections & learning through various homemade tools, products & publications.
