Digital Storytelling for People Helpers


Meaning-making and self-discovery for people helpers

Digital Storytelling, sometimes called “the baby brother of filmmaking,” opens up the wonderful world of turning non-techie storytellers into novice filmmakers. Like music, dance, art, and writing, it is an untapped enabler of meaning-making and self-discovery.

This two days hands-on workshop introduces social workers and people helpers to the ways Digital Storytelling can help reach their personal, professional, and organisational vision and mission.

By the end of this workshop, you will create your 2-minute Digital Story (video). In the process of creating your story, you will discover the many uses of storytelling for your people-helping mission.

I shared what we learnt with our colleagues today. Your course is very different from others that I attended – it’s easy to understand yet has so much substance, allowing us to think deeper about how to apply it at work, without having to use complicated tools.
