The Book Incubator can help you to capture living memories of your community or community group.  We believe that communities should own their own stories and share them the way they want to. Some communities may choose to share publicly through social media, some through printed works. Some may choose to keep the stories within the group. Whichever way your group has in mind we will customize a workshop program for you. Please contact us to find out more about how we can work together.


We strongly recommend that if you a community care worker or advocate  interested in running one of our customized workshops for your  group that you first attend either a public workshop or a facilitator's workshop to gain understanding and experience  of our process and how how we can best partner with you. If this is not possible we recommend that an arrangement is made for the community care workers to attend a pre workshop seminar to gain an insight to the process.
