The Storytelling Academy at the NAWE Conference 2022
Antonia Liguori and Alison Mott shared the digital storytelling message with delegates from across the globe this week at the conference of the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE).
Based in the UK but linked to partner-organisations across the world, NAWE is a subject association which promotes creative writing as both a distinct discipline and an essential element in education in general.
The organisation promotes good practice in delivering creative writing activities in schools, community contexts and Higher Education, and provides advice, support and training opportunities for the writers, writing teachers and other literature professionals who make up its membership.
As such, then, its annual conference – delivered online again this year – was an unmissable opportunity to raise awareness of Digital Storytelling and its usefulness for building capacity across a range of themes, including those of renewal and resilience on which the conference focused.
Antonia and Alison had time to give delegates a flavour of the steps followed in a regular Digital Storytelling workshop and showcased some of the project outputs produced as part of the two Erasmus+ projects coordinated by the Storytelling Academy, CERTIFY and SOLIS.
