Do you have a story to tell? Join our Digital Storytelling Workshop.

How to write a short (life) story which will describe fragments of spatialized memory of your everyday life? Can it be connected to your work environment? If you believe that you are more creating than performing work – than your story can be a source of inspiration to others and also a presentation model for your organisation in digital times. Learn how to tell a story and connect with others is actually just one of the virtuosity you learn in the process of digital storytelling.

Digital Storytelling can be a powerful tool for organisations, initiatives, activists and individuals. Digital stories are a modern way of telling stories by mixing digital graphics, text, recorded audio narration, video and music in order to share a point of view on a specific topic. It is definitely art, art of telling stories in which we can be creative using our organisational and personal experiences of everyday life, by using our everyday and really handy equipment, such as mobile phones and digital cameras. Be part of innovative education and get 21st century skills in creative making of digital stories.
