Digital storytelling is a powerful means for enabling communication and social participation. Ordinary people work with expert creative practitioners to create first-person narratives for a wide and growing range of purposes, including community building, cultural engagement, brand identification, education, and public communication. This form of co-creative media takes advantage of newly accessible technologies but is based in the ancient and universal tradition of storytelling.
These workshops are aimed at arts managers, media and communication professionals, and professionals in other service industries (for example, health and education) who wish to develop and update their applied knowledge of how digital media can be used to engage clients and end-users. Prior knowledge of digital media applications is not necessary.
This course is open to anyone over the age of 18, including international participants.
The program is suited to people who would like to:
QUT Kelvin Grove Victoria Park Road Kelvin Grove Qld 4059
We'll confirm room details closer to the course start date.
This program runs over 3 weeks, with an introduction in week 1, and workshops and optional seminars in weeks 2 and 3.
In addition to the scheduled workshops, it is possible for extra workshops to be delivered off-campus and customised to address specific professional, community, cultural or commercial objectives of host organisations.
$1,430 (GST included)
There will be a lunch break from 12pm-1pm during the full-day workshops. You'll need to bring your own lunch or purchase food on campus.

A digital story usually combines 15-30 still images and a recorded script of 100-250 words to create an original personal digital story in the form of a 2-3-minute digital video.
Digital storytelling is used in teaching and research at QUT as a platform for exploring the benefits and possibilities of social participation. These include improved digital literacy and communication skills, healthier and more resilient communities, and a public culture enriched by perspectives and experiences that might otherwise be missed. Our Creative Industries Faculty researchers have an internationally recognised track record in adapting digital storytelling to a variety of contexts and purposes, including poverty reduction, public history, and youth engagement.
Our five-day intensive workshops are designed to help individuals and organisations to build their own capacities to facilitate social participation through co-creative media production techniques such as digital storytelling.
