Word on the Street can help you take your story to the street!
We are offering a 3-day workshop on digital storytelling on Monday, December 2nd, 9th and 16th from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Keshen Goodman Library. Digital Storytelling brings together story with technology to create a powerful tool for awareness, advocacy, and capturing important narratives. It is a valuable communication method for teachers, small businesses and nonprofit organizations. It is also a great way to capture community or family history.
The workshop will walk participants through creating a digital story of their own. The registration fee is $160.
