Meet the Team behind Storylines
Storylines was founded in 2014 by Sarah Trevillion, Ali Roscoe and Kim Pilgrim. Having collaborated on a number of creative community projects, we realized that collectively we had a unique and effective way of working. Alongside a shared vision and values, each of us brings different skills and life experiences. This enables us to deliver bespoke projects that are close to our heart. Recording audio memories has become central to our way of working and the positive changes this can bring about are what keep us passionate.
Together we see ourselves as story-gatherers and ideas generators. Here are a few other things that we are…
