Our Themes

The Digital Commonwealth project is designed to provide opportunities for a wide constituency of people to produce a creative response to the impending 2014 Commonwealth Games, enabled through the digital medium. Whilst we do not wish to restrict the voices being heard or narrow the way in which individuals and groups might interpret the concept of Commonwealth, to ensure some coherence to the stories being told, four broad themes have been created:

– Place (local, national, international, virtual)
– People (diversity, migration, participation)
– Culture (language, art, music, film, literature, sport)
– Exchange (common-weal, values, learning)

Resources to help learners and other participants to engage with these themes can be found in these documents:

    We have schools broadcasting on http://www.eastcoastfm.co.uk. Each secondary school in East Lothian has a two hour slot. We would like to start a Commonwealth theme from now until the games and would welcome any support to enable us to make professional Commonwealth broadcasts professional with interviews and information totally Commonwealth related. Who would we contact to get help
