Storytelling for Social Change
March 30
Storytelling is a powerful tool for the documentation of voices, memories and histories. It can also be a catalyst for activism and social change. In Storytelling for Social Change we will explore the ethics and techniques of oral history, ethnography, and storytelling as activist research methodologies. Attendees will be introduced to these three merging methodologies through a combination of short media pieces and discussions, will be invited to take a critical and analytical look at the history of documentary work, and will learn the basics of skills such as interviewing, story circle facilitation, and ethnographic observation. We will also cover the technical aspects of storytelling, providing an introduction to tools for minimal-resource and mobile audio recording. This workshop is intended for anyone interested in developing collaborative documentary or storytelling skills, including students, community members, cultural and social service workers.
