to find – to tell – to share
We all like telling stories. We all wish to leave traces for the future. Everyone has a hidden, buried story. By the digital storytelling anyone can find their own voice.

Promoting and understanding the importance of the personal narratives, organizing digital storytelling workshops for different age groups and with different aims
Digital storytelling is a relatively new term which describes the new practice of ordinary people who use digital tools to tell their ‘story’ (digital narratives). Digital stories often present in compelling and emotionally engaging formats, they are usually 2-3 minutes long.
One can define digital storytelling as the process by which diverse peoples share their life story and creative imaginings with others.
During the digital storytelling workshops the participants will design and produce a 2-3 minute digital story. Sharing stories can lead to positive change. Personal narratives can touch viewers deeply, moving them to reflect on their own experiences, modify their behaviour, treat others with greater compassion, speak out about injustice, and become involved in civic and political life. Whether online, in social media or local communities, or at the institutional/policy level, the sharing of stories has the power to make a real difference, to understand, to learn from the stories, from each others.
