Digital Storytelling: The Power of Story for Sustainability, Health Arts, Self-Knowledge, and Community Building

Digital Storytelling: The Power of Story for Sustainability, Health Arts, Self-Knowledge, and Community Building
Fri, 04/19/2013 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
Fort Worden
Port Townsend, WA

An exploration of digital storytelling (audio as well as image + sound) -- what it is and it's relationship to art and activism. This workshop is free and open to the public and is offered by undergraduate program faculty member Karen Werner.

Storytelling enriches "the mysterious development of [our] souls." Stories help us learn, make sense of our lives and our world, connect, 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 plunge into story-making, generating our own material for the internet platform, Cowbird.

We'll also review how people have been using digital story forms to support work in sustainability, health arts and sciences, and other forms of personal exploration, activism, and community building.
