Coming up at Digital Storytellers – workshops, events and more!

It’s been an exciting few weeks at Digital Storytellers with the launch of our Impact Story Lab and a sold out workshop as part of Vivid Sydney, but the fun doesn’t stop there! We have a few workshops coming up soon to help you unlock your inner storyteller…

These hands-on sessions are designed to build your storytelling capacity using the tools and resources you already have at your fingertips (i.e. your smartphones!). We love seeing teams come along to FIND, MAKE, EDIT and SHARE their stories and capture the impact of the amazing work they’re doing in the community for people and the planet.

What’s coming up… 

Melbourne: Media and Digital Storytelling for Creative Action, June 19th 

For all you activists out there, this one day workshop with our friends at CounterAct in Melbourne on June 19, will teach you everything you need to know about:

  • How to embed fast-turnaround video storytelling in activist movements
  • How to use the power of your smartphone and minimal (or no!) additional equipment, and
  • How to work effectively with traditional media for your cause.

Before we go, it would be remiss of us not to mention that the end of the financial year is coming up…

That means many of us are frantically trying to find something to spend our professional development budget on before it disappears on July 1. Story is always going to be cool, it’s like been around forever. So, invest in story before EOFY! You won’t regret it.

Aaaaand, we can even organise to invoice your organisation directly. Just get in touch here.

Speak soon folks!
