SHARE to heal, remember and make meaninG

Throughout history stories have been used to teach and remember struggles so that others may struggle less. The act of storytelling in it’s own right is a healing process. Thanks to a grant from the Town of Crested Butte, Living Journeys is bringing StoryCenter to Crested Butte for a three-day workshop this spring.  StoryCenter has helped over 20,000 people conceive and create their first digital story.  The genre, a two to four minute short video - deeply personal, elegantly presented - is a powerful form of communication. The end result will be ten digital stories made by community members affected by cancer.   The authors may choose to share these stories so that observers may be inspired to take action, find new empathy, and grow stronger together as a community.

DIGITAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP 

WHEN:  April 28 - 30, 2017

WHO: The workshop is limited to ten individual storytellers. Daniel Weinshenker and Holly McLelland of StoryCenter are both able to be with us here in Crested Butte to facilitate the workshop.
