A Gathering of Digital Storytellers

Digital storytellers are everywhere – in middle school, in senior centers, and Native American communities; they are survivors of war, victims of abuse, and at-risk youth. This evening, storytellers from Portland, Ukiah and Santa Barbara joined storytellers from the Bay Area at KQED to network and share stories.

The evening was co-sponsored by KQED Digital Storytelling Initiative, the Center for Digital Storytelling, the Digital Storytelling Festival, Zero Divide Digital Storytelling Institute (a partnership between the Community Technology Foundation and BAVC) and the Digital Storytelling Association.Some of the people who shared digital stories were:

  • Amy Hill, who works with Silence Speaks, digital storytelling in support of healing and violence prevention
  • Joe Lambert, of the Center of Digital Storytelling
  • Gary Nale and Sunny Ross, who will be starting the Digital Literature Institute in Santa Barbara
  • Tamara, who teaches digital storytelling in an after-school program to middle school students in Oakland (her students use PowerPoint to create the digital stories!)
