The ‘Diff Diaries One Year On: Short film showcases lockdown stories

The experiences and emotions of children in Cardiff during the first coronavirus lockdown have been captured in a short film.

One year on from the start of the nationwide shutdown last March when schools closed, home schooling began and households needed to stay at home, the ‘Diff Diaries project - which invited young people across the city to document how their lives had changed throughout the pandemic, has culminated in a 30 minute video showcasing the submissions.

The project was launched by the Cardiff Commitment, a Council initiative that brings together the public, private and third sectors to work in partnership with schools, industry and education providers, to raise awareness of the breadth of career opportunities available in the Cardiff Capital Region and develop children and young people's skills to sculpt the future growth for the jobs of tomorrow. The project was supported by Screen Alliance Wales, Principality Building Society and University of South Wales.

Children and young people were invited to submit a short video diary, photo collage or written diary entries showing how they were keeping busy, the new skills they were developing from home, how they were staying connected with family and friends, to give them the opportunity to share their experiences during those challenging times.

A short film has now been produced by media production students at project partners, the University of South Wales, to celebrate the project and all those who contributed to it. Excerpts of the short film will be featured on the Council and Cardiff Commitment's social media channels. The full version can be viewed here:

Working with the Museum of Cardiff, the videos will also be kept to help future generations to understand what living in this unprecedented time was like for children and young people in Cardiff. This aspect of the project will be developed when the museum is able to reopen again.
