We have held workshops on the expression of personal memory since 2006. The purpose of the current study is to investigate a workshop on the expression of personal memory. These expressions constitute “photos” and “narrations.” To clarify the relationship between them, we held a mini workshop involving the use of PC software called “Zuzie,” which we developed. There are two kinds of “narrations”: (1) arranged stories and (2) memories that are generated and told immediately. It was invented by giving the many viewpoints supported by “Zuzie.” The narrations changed participants’ memories from personal to group.

Keywords: personal memories, group memories, expression, photo, narration, community, workshop
