Workshop: Digital Storytelling

Workshop: Digital Storytelling
Wed, 08/27/2014 - 7:15pm to 8:45pm

In this workshop with faculty member Karen Werner, we'll review how people use digital stories to support work in sustainability, public health, and other forms of personal and social repair. We will also create and share our own digital stories. Bring a laptop if you have one.

Free and open to the public as presented by Goddard College's Undergraduate Program. Questions? Contact karen.werner@goddard.edu.

Storytelling enriches "the mysterious development of [our] souls." Stories help us learn, instruct, make sense of our lives and our world, and advocate. With recent innovations in radio aesthetics, editing technologies, and the internet, digital storytelling has taken off as a form of art and activism. In this workshop, we'll review a range of digital storytelling forms (audio as well as image + sound) and emerging infrastructures for distributing stories through radio, podcasts, and internet platforms. We'll review how people have been using digital stories to support work in sustainability, public health, and other forms of personal and social repair. Best of all, we will plunge into digital story-making, generating personal pieces that can be posted on the internet platform, Cowbird. Bring a laptop if you have one! Computers will be available.
