Deepening Your Practice
Advanced Workshop in Digital Storytelling Facilitation and Production

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-requisite required – 2 years of facilitation practice – Prior participation in StoryCenter Led Workshop

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm GMT
Instructors: Joe Lambert, with others TBA

No matter how long our practice of assisting people in story, and digital storytelling, we all continually absorb new concepts, new perspectives, new techniques that inform our practice. In the first two hours, Lambert will walk through his theory of story work, and lead participants in a series of small group discussions to explore aspects of the evolving issues of our work. Included in the discusssion will be working with issues of trauma, neurodivergence, disability, as well as race, class, gender and culture. The participants will be asked to conceive of a story reflecting on the challenges/opportunities of their own work in story, and to identify a central visual metaphor that would complement the story they create. The final component will be a pair exercise based on the These Hands prompt to be recorded as a final presentation.

Open to Any Experience Level
Limited to 12 Participants
