Peopleprint Community Media (now Chance Media) has been giving local people a voice since 1984. We have grown to become leading providers of local digital content all across the arts in Rochdale. Core work includes: podcasting, blogging, social networking, digital video, photography and design. We are passionate about creating a friendly atmosphere for people to share skills, gain confidence and go digital.
We work with all ages and abilities in the local community at our studio based at Redbrook Mill, Rochdale. We have a core team of volunteers with an emphasis on informal training, skills sharing and confidence. The positive media produced is of benefit to the local community to tackle isolation and community cohesion, giving local people a voice through digital content. Outreach projects are delivered with community groups, schools and colleges.

This film shows artist, Liam Dean, painting the street art for Rochdale’s commemoration for World War One. The striking final image is the visual representation of the thoughts and emotions of pupils from Holy Family RC & CE College, Matthew Moss High School and Service Veteran Harry Mills. These thoughts from a cross-generational, multi-cultural group were built into more tangible poems by Ray Stearn, giving Liam the ideas for the images that appear now.
The Digital War Memorial is a project led by the Society of Chief librarians. It brings together a wide range of communities to work with high quality artists to create their own unique creative response to the First World War Centenary. Using the rich resources of local libraries and archives as the starting point, the new artworks tell diverse stories of how the First World War touched people’s lives and how it is remembered today. From 2014 to 2018 we hope to see projects across the whole country that will cumulate into a truly national memorial for our times.
