Survivors in Motion - Digital Storytelling Workshop

This workshop will give Moore survivors, first responders, and care providers of the May 20th, 2013 tornado a supportive space to explore and create their own recovery stories through digital storytelling.  Digital storytelling combines writing, images, and audio, and the workshop will train participants in the use of an easy-to-learn video editing application.  Workshops will be held on Fridays July 18th, July 25th, and August 1st from 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Moore Public Library. 

The workshop is free.  Subscriptions to the online video-editing application will be provided. Meals will be provided as well.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops, although laptops can be provided for use during the workshop sessions.

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Share with each other their recovery experiences.
  • Write short 1 – 2 page story manuscripts in collaboration with each other and workshop facilitators.
  • Learn digital storytelling techniques and video editing technology.

The digital stories developed in the workshop will aid personal recovery and build community strength.
