Welcome To Our Website

Generating Opportunity CIC is a creative wellbeing project in Perth, Scotland, working with people who use support. We use the medium of the creative arts, including photography, drawing and painting, crafting, creative writing, reminiscence activity and film to deliver activities which encourage people to express themselves, dream big and get the most from life. We work with clients as creative collaborators, learning from them as we share and develop common interests. This enables us to celebrate diverse voices, promote wellbeing and strengthen communities. We also encourage people to tell and share their stories, through music playlists, the spoken and written word and Life Story films. And we work with artists, crafters, musicians and makers, to widen the networks of arts-based opportunities for our clients.

Launch of Fulfilling Stories project


Fulfilling Stories
We are delighted to be delivering our THIRD year of Life Story work to celebrate and support senior residents across our community through encouraging and enabling them to share their life stories and memoirs.
Fulfilling Stories will enable more individuals in care homes and other care settings to tell and share their living histories, with support from their families. This project will also incorporate training and guidance for families and activities staff to become more confident at stimulating and recording reminiscences and we will also include some intergenerational work with children and young people.
Eileen and Bill were two of our most recent participants and we had the most captivating conversations with each of them. Eileen referenced travelling across Ireland on a donkey at the age of 18, with a friend and Bill shared his lifelong passion for gardening. We are indebted to Eileen and Bill and their families as well as Activity Coordinators Carol and Suzie. We love what we do.

Eileen is pictured here with her Memory Box, being interviewed by Linda. Many of the individual films we make are kept private, but some are available here and we also invite participants to allow us to share segments of their films such as in our compilation Life Stories from Strathearn. Our next compilation film - Moments in Time - will be available here shortly.
