On Nov 4 and 5, The Back Storytellers of San DIego Inc. and National University are hosting
Common Threads International Storytelling, Dance & Drum Conference/Festival
The event explores the opportunities that storytelling offers to introduce the arts in the school.
Emily Hooper Lansana, Linda Brown, Gwen Chamberlain, Florence Edmunds, Jerry Hager, Linda Whiteside and Victoria Burnett are some of the performers / teachers / artists that will take the stage during the conference.
I was invited to talk about digital storytelling (DST), which I will do at 8:30AM PDT on Saturday November 5. In my talk I will take the approach of the Center for Digital Storytelling: a human-centered, social, vision of DST and will showcase some international nonprofits working with DST and education: Ambrosias' Tafel (Belgium),
Stranger Festival (the Netherlands), the Karuna story project in Second Life and Media Shots (Portugal) - of which I am a co-founder.
My Prezi presentation link is next. Enjoy!
