His granddad, who recently passed away, was the one person who had real faith in him. Nathan used his artistic abilities and a digital platform to express his pain and speak about his situation in a society where he felt his voice wasn’t heard.
Using a digital recorder Nathan recorded all his creative moments – whether it be in the form of song or poem – to produce a short, inspirational film with writer and development worker Kevin Hodgetts and sound artist Isabel Jones, both of Salamanda Tandem, titled ‘Can’t Stop Me Shining.’
Nathan Campbell says: “Art helps you to keep shining. It helps you hang onto your colours. This is the truth I wanted to say.”
