Digital storytelling


How can organisations share stories online in a way that attracts the interest of their audience, engages with their supporters, and helps their stakeholders and potential funders understand the impact that services have on individuals?

Cartoonist Tim Sanders ( , who has done work for many publications including the Independent and Guardian newspapers, will be presenting the technique of digital scribing, an entertaining way to combine animation and narration in a video with a social message.

Emina Demiri (@DemiriE) is a Digital Media Specialist at Locality. Her session is all about getting to grips with producing tiny stories for big community impact. Every story has a narrative but that doesn't mean it needs to be pages or hours long; in fact, when it comes to digital storytelling, it shouldn't be!  With some useful tips on how to focus your content, free digital tools you might want to use, and some good examples, this session will give you the basics of tiny storytelling. And, expect it to be interactive, so put your participatory shoes on and come along!

Please note that the venue is fully accessible for those with special needs (Wheelchair ramp, lift between floors).

    We'll probably record audio, and will put the presentation online afterwards. Not sure about video yet.
